Darryl J. Hopkins
Curriculum Vitae
Visual Art and Design



Darryl Hopkins is a visual artist whose work has been criticized by some as confrontational or
obscene. He often stares with an unblinking eye into the state of our human condition which many are
content to ignore or deny. His work is not for everyone.
The imagery of Hopkins' work can be extremely evocative, whether in its rawness or subtlety, but
directly honest in conception and execution. It is an unpredictable style which assumes many forms that
speak to the heart as well as the mind.
As an artist, Hopkins challenges himself in his expressive studies, tackling complex topics of fear,
anguish, alienation, and archetypes of systemic oppression. He presents no easy solutions or empty
promises of salvation but paradoxically shows the futility of individual suffering when suffering is so
evident in everyone.
