The video shows an animated sunrise and was created on Hockney’s iPad.

Discussing the artwork Hockney, 83, previously said: “What does the world look like? We have to take time to see its beauty.

“That’s what I hope my work will encourage people to do when they see it on the large screens.”

The video is being shown every evening throughout May in Piccadilly Circus.
