MeetDavidHockney David Hockney (born 1937) is
a British born artist who lives in Los Angeles.
He began his career as a painter, and it is earliest paintings that have earned him the label of Pop Artists.
Many people consider Hockney a Pop Artist because his first paintings were light hearted and showed common scenes, much like the work of other Pop artists.

Later From 1973-1975 he lived in
Paris and worked with two of Picassos printers.
During this time he made etchings in memory of Picasso, who he greatly admired.
It is very possible that Picassos cubist paintings inspired the photo collages that Hockney began creating in the 1980s.
First Collage Style was the Grid Collage
