Episode 652: David Hockney

This week we have the honor of welcoming David Hockney. One of the world’s most celebrated artists David joins us at an amazing time. We catch up with him in the context of his beautiful new show at Richard Gray gallery but we catch him the day before he is expected to become the artists whose work has broken the world record for highest price paid at auction for a work by a living artist. He is pretty chill about it and gives us a little bit of a lesson on perspective and how photography has rotted the Western mind. We also learn what VR might be good for.
