David Hockney

Year and place of birth: 1937, Bradford, United Kingdom Location: Bradford, United Kingdom

David Hockney is considered one of the most symbolic personages of British pop art in the 1960s. British pop art originated in the 1950s and was characterized by satire focused on mass culture and consumerism. Hockney developed his own figurative style and painted everyday scenes with an uncomplicated, realistic and flat painting approach with vibrant colours. Often aspects of his personal life determined the subjects for his work. His homosexual nature became a theme of his early work and later the lifestyle of the well-to-do American society was likewise often a theme.
