Clyde Hopkins is a painter who has worked in studios in South East London for over thirty years; he was one of the group of artists that helped to set up A.P.T in Deptford in the mid 90s.

His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in public galleries throughout the UK including the Serpentine, the Hayward, the Whitechapel, the Mappin, the Ikon, the Axiom, the Bede, Winchester, Salisbury Arts Centre and the Arts Gallery London. He has also shown at the Royal Academy and private galleries including Francis Graham-Dixon, Flowers East, Martin Tinney, Cardiff, and Galeria Joan Prats New York.

In 2007 his work was included in 'Scratching the Surface' at Eton Drawing Schools (with Francesca Simon, Stuart Geddes and Gary Wragg), and in June 2008 in the RA Summer Exhibition and in an exhibition, with Marilyn Hallam, in the Art into Hospitals scheme at the Conquest Hospital, East Sussex.

Advanced Graphics London has published a number of editions of screen prints, and has represented him at art fairs.

In 1980 he was awarded the Mark Rothko Travelling Scholarship, and in 1998, the Lorne Award.

He has worked in many UK art colleges and universities, and from 1990 to 2006 was Head of Painting at Chelsea College of Art, from where he retired as an Emeritus Professor. In 2007-08, he acted as the curator and organiser of an exhibition celebrating painting at Chelsea, called '… Same As It Ever Was' which contained the work of some fifty artists, occupied three galleries and was accompanied by a catalogue with texts by Matthew Collings, David Ryan and Clyde Hopkins.

His paintings, prints and works on paper are in a number of private and public collections.
