What to expect

David Hockney has been described as Britain’s ‘greatest living artist’. In this fascinating collection of archive interviews we hear – in his own words – about his paintings, his schooldays and the attitudes he had while growing up. Hockney discusses the influence that his family had on him, as well as his passion for drawing and his work rate. He also touches on the importance of different types of medium, the different periods in his life – and his future.
