The artist

David Hockney (1937)

David Hockney is a British painter known for his depictions of life in Los Angeles, a fascination that began in childhood and continued when he visited the West Coast in 1964. Hockney captures the city's hedonistic spirit, culture, activities and climate in his pop art paintings. This move led him to switch from oil paint to acrylic paint, which gives his works soft, brilliant hues, as in his Swimming Pools series. He works with printmaking, photography, iPad drawing, is interested in scenography and cites Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse as influences. Interested in all image-making processes, he does not hesitate to use technology (fax, photocopier or iPad...) and to play with perspective to renew his painting. He has also published several theoretical works, notably on the techniques of the old masters. He is one of the greatest living figurative artists. Today, Hockney spends most of his time in the East Riding countryside in Yorkshire and continues to paint en plein air.
