Kevin Hopkins is an artist born in Beaufort, South Carolina. However, because of his father’s service in the United States military, he lived in Texas and Germany for most of his childhood. After returning to South Carolina with his mother and siblings, Hopkins developed a passion for fine arts, which led to his acceptance into the Kansas City Art Institute. Double-majoring in Painting and Art History, Hopkins has focused his studies on contemporary art through painting, drawing, art history, and curation. Hopkins plans to pursue a career as an independent artist and curator and has begun working towards this goal by designing or curating for multiple Gullah Geechee people and institutions including, Harvard Gullah Professor Sunn m’Cheaux and The Beaufort Black Chamber of Commerce.
