paul smith hearts david hockney

Paul Smith's ss08 was inspired by pop artist David Hockney and if there's one thing I love, it's this sort of muse-inspired project. I'm no expert on pop art but I'll admit artists like Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol gross me out a bit. For some reason though, I've always been attracted to Hockney's flamboyant prints and fine pen illustrations ever since I was a kid admiring my parents' taschen coffee table books. Needless to say, I'm liking this collection.

This man definitely has style. I really like the style quirk of the long bandana hanging out of his pocket

Hockney is a truly mediocre artist
who never learned to paint or draw,
dunno what i dislike the most, his really bad cubist paintings or the fact that someone who has really bad skill tried to do a book about how the old masters worked.

I like his photo collages tho!
keep doing that & forget painting.
