David Hockney is adding some Christmas cheer to the city of London.

The famous British artist has unveiled his latest work, Bigger Christmas Tree, exclusively for the festive season.

The work entails two digitally animated Christmas trees projected onto two chimneys of the London Battersea Power Station.

The power station isn’t in working condition anymore and has been turned into apartments and offices. A massive part of the office park is now home to Apple’s headquarters in the United Kingdom.

In light of this, the entire work of art was created by Hockney on an iPad. It also includes 10 minutes of animation.

Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing said in a statement that the tech company feels privileged that Hockney chooses an iPad for his work.

“David is one of the world’s most important and influential artists, and we couldn’t be more excited to see his latest creation lighting up Battersea Power Station. It’s a privilege for us that he chooses iPad for his work, and to create this beautiful Christmas gift for the people of London.”

The two festive trees were first lit up on 1 December and will stay that way until 25 December.
