David Hockney Inspired Collages

Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque are the creators of the distinguished art style of cubism which was developed in the early 20th century. The art is on a flat surface but it is made in a two-dimensional perspective. The subject of the artwork is fragmented and it shows different sides of it at once. The style shows the various perspective of the area in many different photographs. 

David Hockney was a famous British painter. He has done different kinds of artworks like portraits, graphic art, photo collages and his work had "strong homo-erotic content." He studied at Bradford school of art. His works have different styles of cubism such as analytical and synthetic cubism. At Tate Gallery exhibition in London, he saw many Picasso's artworks where he was inspired. He got really famous through his early paintings which got him the title of 'pop artist' during that time which he rejected. He spent most of the time in California and in 1960's he focused on traditional artworks.
