The Biggest Splash: Hockney at the RA

Catch it if you can. This is a breathtaking - literally - exploration of colour. Hockney is undoubtedly the world's greatest living artist and has, in his mid seventies, conquered the iPad and introduced a new artform. The Gallery was crowded with small children oooohing and ahhhhhing so he has also introduced a new generation to art. If like me, you were unable to get a ticket for the exhibition, join the RA and go as many times as you like and take a friend too.  There is no doubt it is worth it -stand up close and view the amazing brush strokes and courageous andvivid use of colour.  I was reminded of Gaugin
