David Hockney: Current at NGV, Melbourne

“I’m interested in all kinds of pictures, however they are made, with cameras, with paint brushes, with computers, with anything.” – David Hockney

With pop art scenes and those iconic swimming pools – artist David Hockney’s influence has travelled far beyond his discipline and into the realms of fashion, film and our cultural makeup. And he’s much more than a painter; having created via photography, lithography, collage and even fax machine in the past, his recent works, on display at the National Gallery of Victoria from November 11, bring digital drawings into the mix. David Hockney: Current invites viewers to get lost in more than 700 works from the past 10 years – from iPad-drawn still lifes to acrylic portraits and immersive videos. Our only advice is to dive on in.
