David Hockney is one of the most iconic living artists in the world and as he approaches his 80th birthday the Tate Britain has gathered a huge selection of his works.
His career has spanned six decades and the versatile artists working in various forms including drawing, print, photography, painting and digital creations. Hockney has always embraced new technology and used it to bring a new style to his masterpieces.
I spend virtually all my time running the site (violins out time) but managed to find time to take myself down to see the exhibition and this five pieces really stood out for me.
It is not to be missed and ticket information can be found here. It really is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see so many of Hockney’s work in one place. It runs until the 29th May.
