Even if he does not consider himself a pop artist, David Hockney is nonetheless often cited as one of the most important artist of this movement. In his naturalistic pictures, he paints his freinds, his dogs, his house, the rooms he stays in on his travels, and the scenery that passes through, often using the traditional genres of potraits, still lifes, and landscapes. Yet hockney avoids labels for his art, saying he seeks an original kind of perception and voice of his own.
