The Vanity Of An Artist: Read Our Exclusive Interview Of Legendary Artist David Hockney On The Occasion Of His Exhibition At The Royal Academy of Arts

At almost 80 years old, David Hockney – who is perhaps the world’s most famous living artist – is more productive than ever. We got a rare chance to visit his busy, paint-splattered and cigarette-littered studio tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles. We had an in-depth conversation over multiple boxes of his favorite brands of cigarettes – Camel Wides and Davidoff, which he keeps cartons of in a drawer marked ‘first aid’ – just between 'sketchbooks' and 'rulers.' Hockey is an avid supporter of smoker’s rights – even in the face of the ocean of studies and laws surrounding the lethality of smoking cigarettes. Hockney can list a number of famous artists that smoked and lived long lives. Indeed, Hockney is a true bon vivant – the last of a breed of artists that lived through multiple generations of bohemia and decadence. Click here to read more.
