“Art has to move you and design does not, unless it’s a good design for a bus” – David Hockney.
A few days ago we checked out a marvellous exhibition in London.
Like us, you may have been obsessed with David Hockney’s works for years and admired them from afar without ever seeing them in person. Well, now you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, not only to see a few but an extensive selection of his unforgettable works together under one roof, from his early days to present. I have written about him / Tate Britain before here.
A man with many talents and an important figure in the pop art movement of the 1960s, Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.
You’re not allowed photography inside, but I’ve included a few of my favourite paintings from the Tate Britain website.
Tate Britain’s exhibition gathers together an extensive selection of Hockney’s most famous works celebrating his achievements in painting, drawing, print, photography and video across six decades.
As he approaches his 80th birthday, Hockney continues to change his style and ways of working, embracing new technologies as he goes. The exhibition is simply incredible! Come and see for yourself.
If you find yourself in London, please promise me you’ll visit?
