Take an intimate walk alongside the mind and brushstrokes of David Hockney, who has been touted as one of the world's most influential living artists. David Hockney: Current has been curated by the National Gallery of Victoria in collaboration with Hockney and his studio. The exhibition features over 700 works and amalgamates a variety of different mediums, including painting, digital drawings, photography and video.

Hockney has been known to work on iPhones and iPads as well as canvas, making him an incredibly intriguing and versatile artist. The exhibition will also display his largest artwork, Bigger Trees Near Water, which is comprised of 50 oil on canvas panels. If the treat of an expansive gallery exhibition doesn't excite you, rest assured there's still more on offer — the NGV will also be holding a range of programs that delve into the themes of the works and Hockney's artistic career throughout the duration of the exhibition, which runs from November until March 2017.
