Only David Hockney has worked in all four Ken Tyler workshops. The English–born artist (1937) has spent many years, on and off, living in America—where some of his most exciting prints have been made; where the discovery of a new technique, a new method of printmaking, often served as a catalyst to explore a new artistic focus.

The first group of prints Tyler and Hockney made together was a set of six colour lithographs, A Hollywood Collection 1965, at the Gemini Ltd workshop on Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles. Each print is in the form of a different genre of painting—a still life, a landscape, a portrait, a cityscape, a nude and an abstract—an instant art collection.
