About KC Hall
KC Hall was born in Bella Bella, BC, and was raised in East Vancouver since he was two years old. He is the grandson of hereditary Chief Irene (Wakas) Brown. At a very young age, KC always had an interest in illustration. In high school, KC developed a passion for handwriting, lettering, and graffiti.
After graduating from high school, he began creating work on a larger scale, including paintings and drawings. In February of 2012, KC studied with Nisgaa artist Robert Tait in the Northwest Coast Jewellery Arts Program at Native Education College in Vancouver, BC. The course inspired KC as an artist since he was introduced to Northwest Coast formline, and he instantly fell in love with the visual language. In 2016, KC designed and presented a blanket to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge while the royals were on a visit to BC.
Currently, KC is creating work that combines both his style of graffiti and the art of his people and formline design, while still following the traditions of both intricate forms. In 2017, Lattimer Gallery hosted an exhibition titled Hálút (Fresh) which featured the work of KC and fellow Heiltsuk artist Dean Hunt. In 2020, KC was commissioned by Foot Locker to create a lightbox installation titled House of Hoops for locations across Western Canada.
