Art lovers staying in 5 star hotels in London may be interested in paying a visit to the highly anticipated David Hockney exhibition when it comes to the capital.
Organisers have announced that the special display will be hosted at the Royal Academy of Arts from January 21st 2012, with attendees urged to book their tickets well in advance as the exhibition is expected to be a hugely popular.
The exhibition is being staged as part of the Cultural Olympiad and will showcase a selection of Hockney’s landscapes for the very first time, in what observers expect to be one of the biggest exhibitions of the year.
Art lovers will be able to view the acclaimed artist’s vision and will be afforded a rare glimpse into the dramatic Yorkshire landscapes of Hockney’s youth, as well as other notable landscapes from around the world.
The exhibition will primarily focus on the new body of creative work the artist has created over the last six years since he moved back to Bridlington, where he lived as a child.
Hockney has created a series of beautiful landscape paintings that illustrate the cycle of nature, the changes of the seasons and the beauty of light since moving back to Bridlington in 2005.
As well as newer pieces of work, visitors to the exhibition will have the chance to view a range of other impressive landscapes Hockney has produced over the course of his illustrious career.
These include Garrowby Hill, Rocky Mountains and Tired Indians, A Closer Grand Canyon and a selection of other paintings created between the 1960s and the 1990s.
Hockney’s continuing relationship with new and emerging technologies will also be traced, showcasing drawings made on iPhones and the iPad, as well as series of films using 18 different cameras.
Entry to the event is priced from £3 to £14.
