Anyone who has tried to photograph a sunrise—or paint it, or film it—can tell you its fleeting energy is not easily captured. But David Hockney, whose animation of a sunrise iPad drawing is being broadcast on screens in New York’s Times Square, London’s Piccadilly Circus, and Seoul’s SMTown Coex throughout the month of May, manages it beautifully.

The British artist isn’t new to iPad drawing. He’s been doing it since 2009, when he realized, he said at the time, that it allowed him to never “have to get out of bed.” In 2018, Hockney used his iPad to design a new stained-glass window for Westminster Abbey, commemorating the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
