David Hockney lights up London for Apple

David Hockney has turned Battersea Power Station into a pair of giant Christmas trees for Apple.

The iconic building is home to Apple’s new headquarters and the Bradford artist created Bigger Christmas Trees on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil.

“Battersea Power Station is such a beautiful building, I wanted to decorate it in a way that I hoped would bring joy and hope to Londoners,” said Hockney.

The animation lasts 10 minutes and will illuminate the 100m high chimneys until Christmas Day.

“David is one of the world’s most important and influential artists, and we couldn’t be more excited to see his latest creation lighting up Battersea Power Station,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. 

“It is a privilege for us that he chooses iPad for his work, and to create this beautiful Christmas gift for the people of London.”

Hockney has used Apple products in his work since 2007, including for a glass window at Westminster Abbey.

The tech giant moved into 6 floors of Battersea Power Station earlier this year, equivalent to around 500,000sq ft of office space.
