Unlikely Hockney

iPhone drawings by David Hockney from here.

I saw this post on The English Muse about David Hockney's obsession with creating art with his iPhone, the Brushes application. How cool is that? Apparently, he creates a bunch then sends 5 or so out to a select group of friends- so cool! It's so interesting to see how technology and art collide in the most unique and unexpected ways.
Thanks to The English Muse for sharing this!

If you're in NYC, check out some of the real deal Hockney's at Pace Wildenstein. It's up when I am in NYC, so maybe I'll try to check it out too.
