David Hockney

British, b.1937

In February of 1986, Hockney began experimenting with a friend’s copy machine and soon he’d discovered it served, in fact, as a new type of printing equipment. The ‘home-made prints’- a term the artist coined to describe the body of work he produced using the photocopier - disrupted the traditional process of colour printmaking, a painstaking working method that involves the expert layering and precise registration of each colour block to build the composite image.
