Nigel Hall RA studied at the West of England College of Art, Bristol from 1960 to 1964 and at the Royal College of Art, London from 1964 to 1967. A Harkness Fellowship took him to the United States from 1967 to 1969.
Hall's work is both exhibited and collected internationally, with his first tubular aluminium sculpture created in 1970 leading to exploration of the ways in which these constructions can alter the viewer’s perception of space. His interest in the qualities of spatial construction is balanced by an equally strong pre-occupation with the particular sites his sculptures occupy.
His recent work has been less minimal in feel, tending towards stronger, more solid forms, and a solo exhibition of his work was held at the RA in 2011.
