Happy birthday David Hockney

Home Paddock reminds us that the great Yorkshire artist was born on this day in 1937. Nowadays he not only paints but uses computers (Tablet and Photoshop) to create images such as the ones in this exhibition currently on in London. He is also making art on his iPhone. Seriously. Look at this:

He tells the Daily Mail:
I like to draw flowers by hand on the iPhone and send them out to friends so they get fresh flowers. And my flowers last!
There’s a very good interview with him by art critic Martin Gayford in the 27 June Spectator here.
