He studied at Edinburgh in the early 1920s and was a member of the 1922 Group. This group entirely comprised a core group of ex-students from the Edinburgh College of Art several of whom had been awarded Travelling Scholarships which were taken in Paris. They returned to Scotland having been significantly influenced by French modernist art. Their main artistic aim was to exhibit outside the regular venues of the RSA and SSA and to veer away from what they believed to be the establishment artists and traditional Scottish Colourists. To this end they formed the 1922 Group. Apart from Wright Hall, significant members and exhibitors included William Crozier, William Ghilles, William MacTaggart, John Maxwell and George Watson. They exhibited at the New Gallery in Samuel Peploe’s Shandwick Place studio and probably held shows until about 1931. Wright Hall was the art adviser and subsequently highly influential keeper of the collection to the City of Edinburgh. His work is represented in the Edinburgh permanent collection.
