Welcome to Hockney Class

David Hockney was born in Bradford, Yorkshire in 1937.  He is a painter, printmaker, stage designer and photographer and works with lots of different media.  He was an important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s and he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.  He is still alive now and still painting.  We particularly like the work from his most recent exhibition at Tate Britain which shows paintings that have been completed on lots of different canvases and put together like a puzzle.  We have reproduced some of these works in the same way.
