Conceptual Art

David Hockney appears to have recently been rather critical of artists who employ assistants to produce their works of art. In this regard, at least, he seems to have similar views to Karl Pilkington. He has stated that he has been quoted out of context and was talking specifically about conceptual artists with little talent who make use of the skills of others. Despite his protestations, it does seem difficult not to read some criticism of Damien Hirst (possibly the most famous living conceptual artist) into his comments. Hockney critises Hirst
