David Hockney and Guy Yanai commissioned for MGM Nomad
May 11, 2018
The MGM Nomad Hotel in Las Vegas (owned by the Sydell Group) commissioned artist Guy Yanai and David Hockney, one of the most popular and influential British artists of the twentieth century, for making large works to be presented together.
Hockney recently exhibited at the Tate Britain, the Centre Pompidou, Paris and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. As Hockney, Yanai plays with the strength of extremely common subjects, depicting plants, living rooms, suburban life, using vibrant colours. In 2015 Yanai was spotted by ArtNet as one of the most exciting artists in Europe today.
