David Hockney


Born in 1937 in Bradford, Great Britain. He currently lives in London, Great Britain and Los Angeles, California.

David Hockney is considered one of the most important British artists of the 20th century and a major contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s – even if he started with an expressionistic style that soon evolved from the 1970s. The artist is worldwide known for his signature acrylic paintings of highly realistic scenes painted in vibrant colours, strongly influenced by California’s light,  landscape and life.
