Sir Anthony Hopkins Unveils Permanent Art Exhibition at Jeff Mitchum Galleries in Las Vegas
Serigraphs and Original Works Now Available for Acquisition at Jeff Mitchum Galleries
Multi-talented Academy Award-winner, Sir Anthony Hopkins, brings his vibrant vision and creative inspiration to Las Vegas with the opening of his permanent art exhibition at Jeff Mitchum Galleries in both Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Recognized as a creative contemporary artist, Hopkins’ art exhibition will showcase limited edition serigraphs and original acrylics on canvas.
Hopkins reveals another talent with his paintings inspired by his dreams and drawn from his unconscious mind. Often described as surrealistic, Hopkins creates acrylic paintings on canvases using a palette knife and a variety of inks to explore the different emotions associated with the combinations of colors used in his works. As part of the exhibition, ten limited edition serigraphs will be available at both galleries.
When asked to describe his paintings, Hopkins responds, “The face is not important. It’s the eyes. The eyes are the most haunting part of one’s soul. It’s very primitive. It’s childish art. It has to be childish because I am a child. I’ve discovered lately that I enjoy all that is supposedly wrong with me. I used to take myself so seriously, but now I don’t. I allow myself to revel in the exhilarating nature of it all, maybe reaching for the divine.”
Working by trial and error, Hopkins continues to forge new paths in the art world by offering collectors a completely fresh approach to modernist art. Known for his mastery of many creative outlets, Hopkins relies on his instincts to produce cohesive, moving and startling pieces of art through form, color, texture and light.
