British painter David Hockney revealed to The Daily Mail on Thursday how he uses his iPhone to paint pictures, as a new exhibition of works he produced on his computer opened in London.

quotemarksright.jpgHockney has had the phone for only four months, but he has already turned it into a hi-tech canvas.

He has painted flowers and drawn landscapes on the iPhone, which is manufactured by Apple and lets users input commands directly on the colour screen with their fingers.

‘I lie in bed and send illustrated art lectures to friends and also my own iPhone paintings,’ said Hockney. ‘I like to draw flowers by hand on the iPhone and send them out to friends so they get fresh flowers. And my flowers last!’

… The artist is not exactly new to embracing the wonders of technology. He has executed prints by fax, used Polaroid photographs in collages and in 1985 he was commissioned to draw with a computer program called Quantel Paintbox.quotesmarksleft.jpg
