There are times when you have the opportunity to discover, sometimes by mistakes, artists or places that will imprint you emotionally for life. David Hockney is a one of a kind British contemporary artist, a unique discovery for me.
The permanent exhibit at Salt Mill in Saltair near Manchester is by itself a reason to take a flight to Manchester.
David Hockney, (born 9 July 1937) is an English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer. An important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s, he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.
Hockney has a home and studio in Kensington, London and two residences in California, where he has lived on and off for over 30 years: one in Nichols Canyon, Los Angeles, and an office and archives on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, California.
