David HOCKNEY

Born in Bradford, England in 1937. Studied at Bradford School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He was influenced by Picasso around this time. Held his first solo exhibition in London in 1963. In 1964 he moved to Los Angeles and began working with acrylic, a new medium at the time. He also began taking photos with an instant camera. After teaching at several schools, he moved back to London in 1968. In 1970, he began to create joiner photos. He moved again to Los Angeles in 1976, and traveled through China in 1981.

Between 1982-1984 Hockney created collages using photos and Polaroids. He came up with many works using new forms of media such as “Homemade Print” made with a copy machine in 1986 and his works using FAX in 1989; at the same time he also worked on things like stage settings for opera. He participated in the 1995 Venice Biennale. After researching the Old Masters of Europe, he published “Secret Knowledge: Rediscovering the lost techniques of the Old Masters” in 2001.
