Photographer: David Hockney
* David Hockney is a world renowned artist and photographer. He was born in 1937 in Yorkshire, England to a working class family. He studied at the Royal College of Art and had his first one-man show at the age of 26.
* Hockney had a variety of careers and jobs ranging from painter to printmaker to photographer and designer.
* Hockney is known not only for his art, but for his exuberant personality and trademark circular glasses.
* Although much of his work is labeled as “Pop Art”, Hockney rejects this label.
* While Hockney was very much inspired by the artist Pablo Picasso, and cubism, he stumbled upon photomontages by accident. He was taking numerous photos and putting them together as inspiration for a painting, and found that he really enjoyed the result.

A style of painting and sculpture which reduces natural forms to their geometrical equivalents. Many cubist artists were trying to show all planes of the object at once.
David Hockney's artwork, especially his photomontage work, has been especially influenced by the cubist works of Pablo Picasso. Trying to capture all angles of a subject, as Picasso did in his cubist paintings, Hockney produced visually captivating artwork.
