Today’s post is a sort of mini-ode to one of my favourite artists of all time, David Hockney, in celebration of his 80th year (even though his birthday is only in July) and the opening of his biggest exhibition to date.
An exhibition at the Tate gathers together an extensive selection of David Hockney’s most famous works celebrating his achievements in painting, drawing, print, photography and video across six decades.
An incredible artist that has involved over the decades with the use of new technology and continuously changing his style.
There’s this simplicity to his work and the use of colour that just pull’s you into the piece particularly his swimming pool series in the 60’s and 70’s.
If you new to David Hockney watch the video below for a brief look into Hockney’s life and his work over the decades. Doesn’t he make you smile form ear to ear?
