David Hockney is an English artist who is best known for his painting but he also prints and dabbles in photography. David was involved with the pop art movement in the 1960’s and he went on to become an influential British artist. He has been tremendously prolific throughout his long and successful career including paintings, digital drawings, photography and video works. His works are incredibly clean and bright. He paints domestic landscapes and portraits and he has a pension for chairs. He often places his sitters in colourful chairs but I chose to draw one of his paintings of a chair. I too love chairs. In 1888 Gauguin’s Chair was painted by Vincent van Gogh and in 1988 David Hockney took his turn. What a beautiful and colourful chair ♥
