An aesthetic cornucopia of design inspiration and artistic passion from Luke Edward Hall, one of today's most colorful and whimsical creative icons
Luke Edward Hall is an English artist, designer, and columnist. His philosophy is shaped by his love of storytelling and fantasy, and his colorful work is often inspired by history, filtered through a lens of irreverent romanticism. Since founding his studio in 2015, he has worked on a range of commissions, from interior design and fashion projects to murals and illustration work for books, restaurants, and hotels. He has collaborated with Burberry, Lanvin, Christie's, Richard Ginori, Svenskt Tenn, Habitat, and Gant, as well as with the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and his drawings, paintings, and ceramics have been exhibited in London, Stockholm, Athens, and the US. Since 2019, Hall has answered readers' questions on aesthetics, interior design, and stylish living in a weekly column in the Financial Times's FT Weekend. His first book was Greco Disco: The Art & Design of Luke Edward Hall, and in 2020 his first large interior design project opened in Paris: the Hotel Les Deux Gares, a 33 bedroom hotel and bistro. Billal Taright is a London based photographer renowned for his striking interiors, fashion, stilllife, and portraiture. After working with Dior in Paris, he opened his own studio in 2013, successfully straddling the interface of art and commercial photography. His work has been seen in Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Tatler, Cabana, and AD, and his fashion clients and collaborations include Hermes, Oscar de la Renta, Diane Von Furstenburg, Tory Burch, Nina Ricci, Peter Copping, Hikari Yokoyama, Richard Ginori, Sotheby's, and many more.
