About David Hockney

David Hockney has always denied being a Pop Artist but is included under this heading because this is how the public perceives Hockney. The most highly publicized British artist since the Second World War, David Hockney was born in Bradford in 1937, the fourth of five children. By the time David Hockney won a scholarship to Bradford Grammar School at the age of eleven, Hockney had already decided that he wanted to pursue art. David Hockney drew art for the school magazine and produced art posters for the school debating society as a substitute for homework. At sixteen David Hockney persuaded his parents to let him go to the local art school, and this was followed by two years of working in hospitals as an alternative to National Service, as Hockney had registered as a conscientious objector.
