David Hockney: Through the Eyes of the Artist

David Hockney: Through the Eyes of the Artist
Prints from Singapore Art Museum Tyler Collection
STPI Summer Show

Bold, luscious colours, dynamic lines and curves fill the walls of STPI with Singapore Art Museum Tyler Collection’s works on paper from British giant David Hockney. This survey of Hockney’s works not only follows his artistic development throughout the years, but pays homage to some key figures of inspiration such as Matisse and Picasso. Best known for his chic, minimal portrayals of Los Angeles, California, these works on paper reveal Hockney’s unique eye into the people and environment around him and show how Hockney’s deft and experimental printing techniques are a true testament to the legacy he had with Master printer Kenneth Tyler. Do not miss this opportunity to see why Hockney is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.
