About

Clive Wilkins is a fine art painter and has exhibited widely, including at the National Portrait Gallery, London on several occasions. He has also exhibited at the Royal Academy and in private galleries in Cork Street, London – where he had a one man show in 2005. His work can be found in public and private collections. Clive has produced portraits of Sir Howard Hodgkin and Sir Peter Blake amongst others and has been presented publicly to HRH Princess Royal.

Wilkins won joint second prize in the Hunting Art Awards with the artist Tom Phillip’s CBE RA (1988).

Wilkins’ writing and paintings have been in print on numerous occasions, most notably in his published work ‘The Creatures in the Night”, a story written and lavishly illustrated by him in 2008.

‘The Moustachio Quartet’, a literary novel in four books was completed in 2018.  He was invited to discuss the work, sponsored by The University of Cambridge, at the Hay Festival 2018. The work explores imagination and questions aspects of consciousness and reality amidst the miasma of being. His next literary project is also a novel with the working title of ‘The Floating, Falling ReFlection‘.

Clive is involved in an arts/science collaboration with Prof. Nicky Clayton of Cambridge University.  Together they are co-founders of ‘The Captured Thought’. They are exploring and investigating the links between their specific disciplines~ the prime interest is to compare notes and ideas concerning ways of seeing, cognition and the need of human beings to make sense of the world they inhabit. In this sense the goal is to better understand the the subjective experience of thinking. They have formulated a unique series of talks to communicate their research and findings to academics and the public. To this end they were invited to discuss their work at a Royal Institution Discourse on 26th October 2012, in the presence of HRH Duke of Kent.

Wilkins (MMC) is a performer and magician and is particularly interested in the nature of illusion and the psychology of perception and the chosen ways we adopt to make sense of a strange world.

The artist and writer currently lives in the heart of England. In his spare time he is a teacher, flautist, tango dancer and orgamist.
