David Hockney: 'The suburbs have taken over Bohemia'

Artist David Hockney, 77, has told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that he is working harder than ever from his home in Los Angeles.

Speaking to broadcaster James Naughtie, Bradford-born Hockney said he spends more time painting now as his deafness has curtailed his social life.

The artist recently opened up his personal archive for the first time for a feature-length BBC Two documentary that will be shown in cinemas from 25 November.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 20 November.
