“The world is very very beautiful if you look at it, but most people don’t look very much. They scan the ground in front of them so they can walk, they don’t really look at things incredibly well, with an intensity. I do.” David Hockney, a British artist and an icon of modern and contemporary art, was born in Bradford, England, in 1937. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, he began to gain recognition in the 1960s, primarily through numerous portraits, still life paintings, and depictions of swimming pools. Hockney not only worked in painting but also explored various genres such as photography, printmaking, illustration, and stage design. His artistic approach was not limited to a single medium, and he constantly embraced new technologies and digital media to embrace a wide range of the artistic practice.
