60 years of David Hockney’s work at Tate Britain

60 years of David Hockney at Tate Britain

I finally went along to the Tate to see the exhibition that brings together a huge selection of 60 years worth of David Hockney’s most famous works, which celebrate his achievements in painting, drawing, print, photography and video.
I was seriously impressed. Room after room full of his work in varied styles – In fact, it was a case of information overload by the end so much to take in.

As Hockney approaches 80, I love the fact that he continues to evolve and embrace new technologies – Indeed, many of his 1,500 iPhone and iPad drawings can be seen in a new publication by Thames and Hudson,  David Hockney: Current
