The fourth offering in our new ART WALK Series features a painting by David Hockney entitled "Garrowby Hill" which inspired this colourway. Painted on Serenity Silk +, Mr. Zen has captured the vividness and subtlety of the colours of the painting. From one medium to the next, artists express their use of colour!
From a splash in a turquoise pool to a drive along a winding canyon road, British artist David Hockney's captivating paintings encapsulate the essence of Southern California. Although predominantly considered a Pop artist, his wildly diverse works are impossible to categorize under one genre reflecting influences of Matisse and Picasso in his use of exuberant acrylic color and strong design. After completing his studies at the Royal College of Art in London, he was attracted to Los Angeles’ free-wheeling West Coast lifestyle and moved his studio there in 1964. The move played a pivotal role in the development of his signature style. Hockney is widely regarded as the foremost British artist of the 20th century.
