M. J. Hale

"I am interested in a close and personal relationship with the subject. Even when the subject isn’t human, my art has a kind of voyeuristic-style point of view. Zoomed-in, up close and personal"

M. J. Hale

M. J. Hale born in 1976 in Birmingham, England has lived a creative life from an early age. He always felt the need to draw and paint to express himself. His love for film, observation and music has significantly influenced his art.

M. J. Hale’s oil paintings inspired by the classical greats often feature portraits and life studies that convey a tactile intimacy to the viewer through his use of heavy impasto texture and his choice of color, occasionally incorporating collage.
Having spent twenty years as a professional video editor, writing and directing his own short films, M. J. Hale moved to Berlin, Germany in 2018 to follow his true hearts passion and set up as a fully-fledged artist. His work in film can be traced through the composition of the pieces, focusing on close physical
observation and bringing out his deep interest in the subtle play between light & dark.
It’s exactly this that won him a place at the 2019 Summer Exhibition of the Royal Academy of Arts in London, with his piece titled “Moondog”.
