Art Brokerage: Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins Welsh Artist: b. 1937. Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins, is an actor of film, stage, and television, composer and artist. Considered to be one of the greatest living actors, Hopkins was born in Margam, Port Talbot, Wales, on 31 December 1937, the son of Muriel Anne (née Yeats) and Richard Arthur Hopkins, a baker. His schooldays were unproductive; he found that he would rather immerse himself in art, such as painting and drawing, or playing the piano, than attend to his studies. Hopkins showcases another talent from his legendary acting in artistry and further embraces his inspiration drawn from portraits and landscapes. Hopkins technique is to use a palette knife to make thick, swooping strokes with gobs of paint. His work is painterly, wild and vibrant and is generous with his motion and use of colour. Sir Anthony’s interest in artwork is purely for the love of it, “When I paint, I just paint freely without anxiety regarding outside opinions as criticisms. I do it for sheer pleasure. It’s done wonders for my subconscious…I dream now in colours”. His work is exhibited and collected both nationally and internationally. We are actively seeking listings.
