From world-renowned English artist David Hockney's childhood in Bradford and early years as an artist, to his sunny Los Angeles stint, his triumphant return to the UK and his latest iPad drawings that proudly proclaim that 'spring cannot be cancelled', Simon Elliott's biography traces the captivating life and times of David Hockney. Drawn entirely on an iPad, in a fully illustrated style – and as a clear homage to Hockney's own iPad drawings – this is a colorful and thought-provoking story of one of the world's most beloved artists.
