David Hockney

Biography

Pop designer whose function encompassed set style, printmaking, pictures, and painting. His 2007 painting, “Larger Trees and shrubs Near Warter,” was his largest just work at the time, calculating 15 ft by 40 ft. He was ushered in to the limelight while at the Royal University of Artwork when his function was exhibited in the Youthful Contemporaries screen. He frequented California as a guy and was influenced to draw some images of pools. He was created with synesthesia, a neurological condition that triggered him to see specific colors together with musical stimuli. His dad, Kenneth Hockney, was a conscientious objector during Globe Battle I. His creative work regularly explored his homosexuality, such as for example in 1961’s “We Two Males Collectively Clinging,” that was inspired from the Walt Whitman poem from the same name. He was affected from the artwork of Andy Warhol.

1 My father thought of Russia as a land of cornfields and happy laughter, and he used to drop copies of The Daily Worker around casually for people to read. Mother was always hissing at him and telling him to pick them up.
