Julian Opie, born in 1958, is a British artist and former trustee of the Tate Gallery in London, England. He uses computerized technology to reduce photographs into figurative reproductions characterized by flat areas of color, minimal detail and cartoon-like thick black lines. This is a rare artist’s proof, aside from the main edition of 50, signed and numbered by the artist on the reverse. The work comes framed in a simple metal frame, as designed by the artist.

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.
