Hockney’s genius combined with his exploration of digital art (thanks to his iPhone and iPad) immeasurably increased the acceptance of this major and seismic tool and medium in art history. It is important to remember, however, that a few brave souls (Frieder Nake, Vera Molnar, Manfred Mohr, Hiroshi Kawano and others) were using digital tools over 50+ years ago.
