Cover picture for the articleThe artist David Hockney occupies a unique role within the art world. In 2018, his 1972 masterwork Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) sold at auction at Christie’s for $90.3 million, setting a record for the highest price ever paid for a work by a living artist. For years, however, Hockney has found an endless wellspring of inspiration in an unlikely source: his iPad, which he’s been using to create entire gallery shows and divisive New Yorker covers at an impressive clip. Now, in collaboration with Times Square Arts’ New York Midnight Moment program, Hockney is debuting new video work created on his iPad that will be displayed on billboards in London, New York, Seoul and Tokyo in May.
