Asda fruit and veg art replicates David Hockney landscapes


Budding artists working at three Asda stores joined forces to use fresh fruit and vegetables to recreate the famous landscapes of English painter David Hockney.

Colleagues at three West Yorkshire Asda stores used a range of fresh produce to create a fruit and veg version of three of Hockney’s most famous paintings of beautiful local scenery.

According to the retailer, the fresh produce was going to waste but was rescued by the artists from stores in Wakefield, Glasshoughton and Huddersfield who carefully crafted their own versions of the Bradford artist’s masterpieces, The Road Across the Wolds, Winter Timber and Slow Life.


Green beans and broad beans are used to show the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds, asparagus mimics the region’s many trees and cauliflower is used to create the woolly livestock that Yorkshire is well known for.

David Hockney is one of the UK’s best known and respected artists. He was born and raised in Bradford and well known for his bright landscape paintings of scenery in and around his native county of West Yorkshire.
