Taschen’s new David Hockney: A Bigger Book is easily one of the most spectacular art books of the season. With its massive size, based on Helmut Newton’s legendary SUMO book from the 1990s, and presented on a specially designed bookstand by Marc Newson, this fantastic folio book is an art object in itself. The tome is a visual tour de force, a stunning journey through the artist’s oeuvre from more than sixty years on 500 pages, presenting more than 450 works in stunning detail and visual clarity. It’s an explosion of color, a blaze of bright blues, vibrant greens, soft pinks and lucent oranges.
Limited Collector’s Edition of 9,000 signed copies, each with a Marc Newson bookstand. Also available in four art editions, each limited to 250 signed copies, coming with an iPad drawing and a Marc Newson bookstand.
The British artist has always been a style trailblazer as well. With his penchant for vibrant colors and bold patterns, David Hockney has been an eternal source of inspiration for the fashion world. His style is full of color, humor and glamour with a touch of grunge. It’s part English, part California. IRMA took a look at his iconic style and selected some key pieces for a modern Hockney look.
