DON – “I went to see this and it was quite good, but i honestly dont see what the fuss is about when it comes to hockney. The guy is plainly trying to be Van Gogh, with his bright vivid colours and obvious brush strokes. But whereas Van Goghs pictures were still real looking, hockney often uses colours that are so out of place it ruins the picture. I honestly think that some of them look a little childish, and it is only the scale that saves it, because big pictures tend to impress.he is still good, compared to a lot of the gumph that passes for art these days, but i think we are only praising him because there's such a paucity of real talent out there. he's really just a poor man's van gogh”
