Vameraworkshe entered graduate school at the Royal College of Art camfraworks London alongside other young artists such as Peter Blake and Allen Bockney, and he experimented with different forms, including abstract expressionism. He did well as a student, and his paintings won prizes and were purchased for private collections. This practice, and paintings such as We Two Boys Clinging Together, which he created inwere the first nods to his homosexuality in his art.
Because he frequently went to the movies with his father as a child, Hockney once quipped that he was cavid in both Bradford and Hollywood.

Cameraworks by Hockney, David
While working on a painting of a Los Angeles living room, he took a series of photos for his own reference, and fixed them together so he could paint from the image.
When he finished, however, he recognized the collage as an art form unto itself, and began to create more. Hockney was an adept photographer, and he began working with photography more extensively.
By the mid s, he had all but abandoned painting in favor of projects involving photography, lithographs, and set and costume design for the ballet, opera and theater. In the late s, Hockney returned to painting, primarily painting seascapes, flowers and portraits of loved ones.
He also began incorporating technology in his art, creating his first homemade prints on a photocopier in The marriage of art and technology became an ongoing fascination—he used laser fax machines and laser printers inand in he started using the Brushes app on iPhones and iPads to create paintings.
A exhibit at the Royal Museum of Ontario showcased of these paintings. In a poll of more than 1, British artists, Hockney was voted the most influential British artist of all time. He continues to paint and exhibit, and advocates for funding for the arts.
