The Book

This publication explores the work of Julian Opie, one of Britain’s most influential living artists. Since graduating from art school in the early 1980s and bursting onto a pre–Young British Artists art scene in London, Opie has influenced the wider field of popular culture more than any other artist of his generation. Published to accompany the exhibition Julian Opie at the National Gallery of Victoria, this 264-page title features a wide range of works, each distilling elements of the natural, urban and figurative world to their essence. In addition, the publication contains essays by NGV curators Dr Simon Maidment and Pip Wallis, with commentary by Justin Clemens, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Melbourne; Elisabeth R. O’Connell of the British Museum; and architect Jack Self, as well as quotes from Julian Opie himself

The Artist

Julian Opie

London born Julian Opie is a renowned visual artist who developed under the tutelage of conceptual artist Michael Craig-Martin at Goldsmiths, University of London. He burst on to the British art scene during the 1980s with a series of painted metal sculptures and is known as one of the most significant artists of his generation. Opie’s work is characteristically striking, combining the minimalism of Pop Art with digital alteration. He uses computer technology to create graphic portraits from photographs, employing simple colours and minimal detail to create a piece that is both abstract but still recognisable. He employs a similar approach to the depiction of books, buildings and landscapes, using a range of media including painted metal, vinyl, LED lights and inkjet on canvas. Because his work has such a contemporary feel, it lends itself to popular culture.
