David Hockney (born 9 July 1937) is a British painter, draftsman, printmaker, stage designer, and photographer. As an important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s, he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century. Hockney has experimented with painting, drawing, printmaking, watercolours, photography, and many other media including fax machine, paper pulp, and computer and iPad drawing programs. The subject matter of interest ranges from still life's to landscapes, portraits of friends, his dogs, and stage designs.
Dublin born artist Ciarna Pham, who works under the name Kiki Na Art, is the creator of these unique pieces of handcrafted jewellery. The stunning one of a kind pieces are made for the individual and no two pieces are ever the same. To compliment the Desire exhibition at IMMA, Kiki Na Art produced a collection of unique jewellery and wall pieces based on women artists in the museum collection. These new pieces celebrate male artists who have been exhibited here or are in the IMMA Collection.
