Little People, Big Dreams: David Hockney - Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
This little biography tells the inspiring story of David Hockney, the inspirational British artist.
Little David loved to draw and looked at the world in his own unique way. He always knew what his path in life would be… he would be an artist!
He went to art school and worked day and night to hone his drawing skills. He sold his first painting as a student, and in just five years he had a sell-out solo show of his work. When he moved from the UK to sunny California, he became known for creating bright, bold paintings.
From the Grand Canyon to the Yorkshire hills of home, David painted fantastic landscapes, including one made of 50 canvases all stitched together. An artist who delights in constantly reinventing himself, to this day David is eager to share his colourful work, and himself, with the whole world.
Little People Big Dreams series portrays the inspiring lives of artists, designers, activists and scientists in a super-accessible way with sweet illustrations and by focusing on when they started out as children with a dream.
