X: Phill Hopkins

X: Phill Hopkins


Drop in to Left Bank Leeds on a Wednesday or Thursday between 10am and 4pm to see the latest exhibition in their Porch Gallery. 

X by Phill Hopkins runs from 1 February to 29 March. 

From his studio on the outskirts of Leeds, Phill Hopkins unravels narratives from our news. Using media stories, often depicting world situations, political events and places of conflict, he attempts, through his art, to make sense of what he encounters. This exhibition brings together drawings, paintings, photographs, prints, constructions and collages from the past ten years, showcasing Hopkins’ prolific outpouring of engaging and thought-provoking art. 

Phill Hopkins was born in Bristol in 1961 and has been an artist based in Leeds since graduating from Goldsmiths College, London in 1985. He exhibits both nationally and internationally, with recent shows at Leeds’ own BasementArtsProject, Charlie Smith London and Galerie Youn, Canada. 

His piece ‘Refugees Walk Through The Port of Piraeus’ was included in the 2017 Left Bank Leeds Summer Show. His work resides in various public and private collections including The Leeds Collection; The Imperial War Museum, London; The Nanjing Baijia Lake International Culture Investment Group China; Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art and The Hungarian Museum of Photography.
