David Hockney – An Artist’s Dwelling (12)

Posted on

I was going to name the post “Tonsil Hockney” but am often told that I like puns a little too much. David Hockney was born on July 9, 1937, in Bradford, England. He is a renown painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer. As an important contributor to the Pop art movement of the sixties, he is noted as one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century. His subjects range from portraiture to still life and from a style of representation to abstraction.  His aesthetic is clean yet flat. The paintings and prints are minimal, simple compositions in honest bright colors similar to the brightness of Picasso (a role model of the artist). Let’s delve into some interior design within his 1984 canvases, shall we?

My name is Keren. I was once a pigeon in Paris, pecking at street cheese, and dreaming of anthropomorphism.
