A Bigger Book, TASCHEN’S SUMO-sized David Hockney Monograph
The monumental sized book is as spectacular in front as it is in scope. In it, David Hockney takes stock of more than 60 years of work, from his teenage days at Bradford School of Art, through his breakthrough in 1960s swinging London, life by Los Angeles pools in the 1970s, up to his recent extensive series of portrait, iPad drawings, and Yorkshire landscapes.
Never before has Hockney’s oeuvre been published on such an astonishing and immersive scale. As each page unfurls in a blaze of blues, pinks, greens, oranges, we are spellbound by the artist’s vibrancy as a colourist and his extraordinary sense of the conditions of the world that surrounds us.
Limited Collector’s Edition of 9,000 signed copies, each with a Marc Newson bookstand.

Metin Salih ‘Monroe’ prints on view at Imitate Modern
Our new artist, Metin Salih, introduces a re-interpretation of the iconic Marilyn Monroe image, beloved by the Pop Art movement. Metin’s illustration-based background is reflected in the hyper-real and graphic nature of the work. His highly expressive work is provocative and sexy, yet able to capture the intimacy and vulnerability of his subjects at the same time. You can discover other versions of Marilyn on Artsy and at the gallery.
