Sam Hopkins is an emerging Western Australian artist and sculptor. Growing up on a vast property in the Perth Hills, surrounded by a seemlingly endless nature reserve, kindled his love for the natural world. It was the catalyst for an ever-growing fascination with material and form.

Finding inspiration from human behaviour, nature, world travel and experimenting with materials & tools in new ways, Hopkins takes commonplace materials and teases out shapes and narratives, peeling back layers to reveal hidden meanings and perspectives. A process that requires both heavy machinery and careful handwork merges man and machine.

Working alongside and mentored by senior sculptor Johannes Pannekoek has enabled Hopkins to develop his own works and on a grander scale. Hopkins has received multiple awards, including the WA Sculpture Scholarship at Sculpture By The Sea Cottesloe 2020 and has exhibited across Australia.
Exhibitions include Sculpture By the Sea Bondi & Cottesloe, Sculpture for Clyde and Sculpture at Bathers. His work is showcased in private and public collections, including Brookfield Properties Perth, Yarra Valley VIC, NSW & Hale School WA.
