Painter David Hockney Rocks the Pixels in Paris

(NRP – December 7, 2010) 

When artist David Hockney first got an iPhone about two years ago, he immediately realized it was a new medium for creativity. “Incredible little thing, really, because it was like a sketchbook and a paintbox all in one,” he said. Better, even: “No cleaning up. No mess.” That’s because he’s painting with an app called Brushes – a small virtual paintbox on the phone’s screen, into which Hockney dips a finger – or 10 – and makes pictures. Then he moved on to the iPad. At a gallery in Paris, a riot of non-paint paintings on luminous digital screens. One wall at the gallery is hung with 20 iPhones; a second wall carries 20 iPads.
