Background Hockney was one of 15 artists commissioned to create posters for the 1984 Games – others included Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg. 1982 was the year he first exhibited works in a new style, composed of mosaics of Polaroid photographs taken from slightly different angles, creating an effect akin to Cubism. The poster is marked ‘Copyright 1982 Los Angeles Olympic Organising Committee’.
