Paul Hipkiss NDD. ATD. RBSA | Little London Gallery, 27 May 2013 [cached]
Paul was originally trained in ceramics and lithography at Stourbridge College of Art and while pursuing his career as a teacher, in which he was Head of Art and Design at Shenley Court School for thirty years, he established a pottery workshop at home, exhibiting and selling work in various outlets.
In 1984 he attended an NSEAD print weekend at Westhill College where Michael Rothenstein was the keynote speaker. From that point on he has been a Printmaker, initially producing woodcuts, but after a few becoming interested in experimental ways of creating images with collagraph and developing ways of combining print techniques such as relief prints and monopoint, collagraph and woodcut and photo-silk screen with collagraph.
Several years ago Paul was one of a group of RBSA artists who put together an exhibition entitled 'Black Country Visions', which was first shown at the RBSA Gallery and subsequently at Dudley and Wednesbury Municipal Art galleries.
Paul regularly teaches print workshops to school and adult groups.
In 2005 he was awarded the Addenda Prize in the RBSA Prize Exhibition.
In 2006 he was awarded the Tregoning Prize at the Derby City Open.
Paul has exhibited his work widely and in 2010 a piece of his work was selected for the 'Originals' print exhibition at London's Mall Gallery.
Paul was elected as a Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2001 where his work can be regularly seen.
He has been the Hon. Curator of the RBSA Gallery since 2001 where he is responsible for the exhibition calendar and the staging of exhibitions.

Paul Hipkiss
Paul Hipkiss was trained at Stourbridge College of Art between 1955 and 1960 and there obtained his National Diploma in Design in Ceramics and Lithography. He began teaching in 1960, and from 1972 to 2000 headed the Art Department at Shenley Court School, Birmingham.
Paul's artistic career has taken several turns; after training, he produced ceramics for some fifteen years from his home studio. In the early 1970s he was a regular exhibitor in the Winter Salon at the RBSA galleries. He became increasingly interested in photography and the graphic aspects of art, a key experience being his attending a print weekend at Westhill College, where Michael Rothenstein gave a lecture and demonstration. Shortly after this Paul produced his first woodcut, an experience that convinced him that print was to become his preferred medium. In the last few years, Paul has been experimenting with collagraph techniques and with combining different print methods within a single image.
Paul has shown his work regularly at the RBSA galleries, and in 2005 was awarded the £250 Addenda prize at the RBSA Prize exhibition. A member of the Birmingham Art Circle, The Easel Club and the Dudley Society of Artists, in 2001 Paul became the Honorary Curator of the RBSA gallery.
Paul Hipkiss was elected a Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2000.
