The waiting is finally over! After months of anticipation and excitement the Tate's blockbuster Hockney exhibition is opening tomorrow. We were lucky to go along to a preview today and what a TREAT awaits you all! 

Gaze in wonder as you walk through room upon room (13 in total) of glorious Hockney creations, from his days at the Royal College of Art to the swimming pools of Los Angeles, his landscapes of Yorkshire to his most recent works in sun-soaked California. 

The size of this exhibition is just incredible, paintings have been gathered from all four corners of the globe to create this unique retrospective of Hockney's works spanning from the early 1960's to paintings created in 2016 especially for this exhibition. A staggering 180 works in total. 

The size, scale, colour and vibrancy of his multiple landscapes is just mind-blowing!

A real highlight was room 11, The Four Seasons. Hockney has documented the passing of the seasons so beautifully with 36 digital synchronized time-lapse cameras. Turn from spring to summer, then autumn to winter. The colour change is just spectacular.

Kids will be fascinated by the last room which shows Hockney's new form of drawing on iPads and iPhones. Watch his drawings come to life before your eyes on large screens. 

Pick up a copy of Meet the Artist: David Hockney kids activity book on your way out. A great introduction for little ones to this phenomenal artist.

Such a treat for all ages and totally worth the ticket price. Go and take everyone you know with you!
