Hockney a Yorkshire lad with an incredible talent


I really like David Hockney’s art, the bold colours and his graphic style. His recent work featuring the Yorkshire landscape are wonderful.

Who cares what Brian Sewell thinks? He is a pompous old fart! I love that Hockney’s pictures are all the things Sewell hates. They are ‘raw’, ‘garish’ and ‘overblown’ as described by Sewell but they are also great. Hockney is loved by ordinary people, that’s why the Royal Academy will draw in the punters. It is a shame the entry price is so high but nothing is cheap these days. We should be proud of David, a Yorkshire lad of incredible talent!
