Phill Hopkins is a British contemporary artist whose versatile practice has a multifaceted nature. He has created a body of work that is remarkably diverse, yet is firmly rooted within a complex and coherent artistic strategy. He is predominantly a painter, who makes drawings and photographs, and sometimes makes sculpture. He works with a range of media, from the traditional to the unconventional. Born in 1961 Hopkins was brought-up in a working class family in Bristol, in southwest England. Although school was difficult he excelled at art, but did not experience the world of art beyond the classroom until accidentally visiting The Arnolfini gallery when he was fifteen. After working in a warehouse and a bakery he was accepted by Goldsmiths College of Art in London. Hopkins has exhibited in museums and galleries including The Imperial War Museum, Kettles Yard, Laing Art Gallery, Hungarian Museum of Photography, Whitworth Art Gallery, Leeds Art Gallery, John Hansard Gallery, The Usher Gallery and The Henry Moore Centre for the Study of Sculpture.
