Artist Spotlight: David Hockney

[Place Furstenberg, Paris, August 7,8,9, 1985 #1 , David Hockney]

One of my favorite artists is David Hockney. Born in England in 1937, Hockney received traditional training based on life drawing and produced figure studies, portraits and cityscapes. He studied at the Bradford school of art and the Royal college of art in London. He moved to Los Angeles in 1964 which greatly influenced his style and subjects. But it is not just his paintings that are ever inspiring to me, it is his use of photo-collage.
