Happy Birthday Hockney

Grayson Perry tweeted last week: “Culture lovers! Take advantage of this weird time. Our galleries and museums are reopening, book a visit and savour the experience of having the art to yourself for a moment. Lockdown has forced us to reflect, art may look different, better even”… and we couldn’t agree more.

From one national treasure of the art world to another, it so happens that David Hockney is celebrating his 83rd birthday this week with a wealth of celebrations, both online and in our strange new physical world, to mark it – not least with the artist’s richly textured East Yorkshire landscape gracing the cover of  British Vogue.

Hampstead’s Zebra One gallery is now exhibiting a selection of editioned Hockney prints depicting his instantly recognisable graphic style from the 1960s to the present day, including The Restauranteur (1972), Gregory (1974), I Say They Are (1976-1977) and 1995’s Fifth Detail, Snails Space (below)

Until 18 July, 1 Perrins Court, NW3 (020 7794 1281)
