David Hockney became known as a central figure of British Pop Art in the 1960’s and continues to be widely celebrated as one of the most influential living artists of our time.
Born in Bradford in 1937, he graduated from the Bradford School of Art in 1958 and studied at the Royal College of Art from 1959–62. Alongside his prodigious painting and drawing practice, he has constantly explored new technological possibilities in making art. In the 1980’s he embraced Polaroid film, photocopying and faxing and, more recently, digital media including photoshop and his iPad and iPhone as new means of conceiving and creating mesmerising multiple view and composite images. Now in his eighties, Hockney continues to create new works in all media with his unwavering desire to continually challenge conventions of perspective in art and how we truly ‘see’.
