Adamant about living in the now

“I live in the now so the past is something you’ll have to dig up.”

David Hockney,  the British artist who’s become known as the ‘the painter of Southern California’

“Artists aren’t hedonists. They’re workers.” Hockey’s persistence echoes Japan’s Hokusai who also believed the best work was yet to come.

You can take breaks but real artists never stop noticing. “Remember,” says Hockney. “Our eyes never stay still. If your eyes are still, you’re dead.”
