Keegan Hall is not your typical artist!
The story of this Seattle artist is really interesting and therefore we recommend you to visit his page and read it completely. We have selected the parts which have hit us the most.
… Hall majored in art school. Unfortunately, people around him did not believe in him and everybody was telling him he was destined to fail. This was the reason why he has decided not to pursue his career anymore… basically gave up on art.
Around 2015 Hall has lost his mom due to cancer and this moment has changed his life. He talks about this with the following:
“I kind of kept going back to my time creating art and how many kinds of joy that brought her. For some reason, I just sat down one day and drew a picture of something I hadn’t done for the last 10 years. I thought I’d start with a picture of Michael Jordan.”Keegan Hall
What is his workflow? The Hall himself says “I like to typically work from a number of different photographs as references and ultimately create my own composition.”
Not only Keegan is an extremely gifted artist, but also he is incredibly socially sensitive. He cooperates with well-known celebrities such as Macklemore and others. He does not sell his work for his own profit. The collected money is subsequently sent to charity. As of now, he has already managed to raise $552,748! For example, just recently he helped to raise money for 2 classes in Kenya.
Now you can take a look at his latest work.
