  Is a Canadian born artist most famous for his large scale, backlit transparencies. His photographic tableau consists of natural beauty, urban decay, postmodern and industrial featureless backdrops.

  He refers to his approaches as:

  • Cinematographic
  • Near-Documentary

Wall started by composing his images based on 19th century historical  paintings, cinema and advertising billboards.  He created ‘A Sudden Gust of Wind’ as seen below in reference to Hokusai’s painting. The photograph holds strong similarity to the painting due to the composition and arrangement of the subject matter which has been precisely replicated.


Also composing ‘The Destroyed Room’ in representation of Eugene Delacroix. The subject matter is evidently different but the arrangement of shapes and colour hold key similarities and characteristics.


Wall captures his images of real life experiences that holds expressive content of the real world. He refers to his images as ‘snap shots that record occurrences and absence of occurrences’ (YouTube Interview, 2015). They appear as snap shot at a quick glance but on closer inspection there is much more detail than fist anticipated.
