Hockney is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century so maybe he made this tube art on 1 April or voted for Laurence Fox.
It comes as part of Khan’s ‘Let’s Do London’ campaign, which, according to his comments in the Metro, means “banging the drum for London to attract jobs, tourism and investment to our city. And it means backing our businesses – large and small.”
“Focused on providing immediate and vital support to our world-famous cultural, nightlife, retail and hospitality businesses, ‘Let’s Do London’ will seek to tempt domestic visitors – and Londoners – back into the heart of our city.”
London is pretty great and boasts a lot more to it than access to Microsoft Paint so perhaps Hockney’s work isn’t needed to get people to the capital.
