The Art of Walt Hall
Walt Hall was born and raised in Northeast Los Angeles. An active artist from a very young age, he cut his creative teeth in the world of commercial art restoration rather than the traditional art school. Although painting is his first and foremost creative method he also employs a wide variety of surfaces, forms, objects, mixed media, and enjoys collecting discarded materials for assemblage work. He paints primarily with acrylics on discarded wood planks and produces work that ranges in size from several square inches to mural sized works on unstretched canvas.

Walt Hall has been showing with Cactus Gallery for nearly 9 years and his forestscapes are vignettes of characters dealing with evolving emotions about life, death, love, freedom and responsibility. His works have beckoned hundreds of collectors with their alluring melancholy; consider adding to your collection by owning a piece by one of L.A.'s most active artists.

Our featured artist will be joined by a wonderful group of artists to explore a nautical theme. This show features an eclectic collection of media: oil and acrylic on canvas and wood, mixed media on canvas and wood, hand embroidery, paper mache, pencil, pen, and ink on paper, chalk pastel and colored pencil on paper, wood and mylar, polymer clay and paper clay art dolls and sculptures, mixed media sculpture and more.
