More About the Book:
From award-winning creator Evan Turk, a stirring biography of world-famous artist David Hockney that celebrates seeing beauty everywhere “It’s the very process of looking at something that makes it beautiful.” —David Hockney
Growing up under the gray skies of England during World War II, David Hockney used art to brighten his world. He discovered that the more he looked and drew, the more he could see beyond the surface to find beauty, possibility, and new perspectives. In the most ordinary things, whether a splash of water, a changing landscape, or the face of a friend, David always found something to love, uniquely capturing the vibrancy and life of his subjects.
Lyrically written and breathtakingly illustrated by award-winning creator Evan Turk, To See Clearly tells the inspiring story of a groundbreaking artist who has shown the world a new way to see.
