Julian Opie

[b. 1958 - Present] View All Work

Julian Opie, one of the most significant pop artists of his generation, has investigated the idea of representation and the means by which images are perceived and understood. He has explored his own minimalist imagery which seeks to reflect, not reality, but rather the way in which reality is represented using his own distinctive language of discipline and formal consistency.

Drawing from a variety of diverse influences - billboards, classical portraiture and sculpture, to classical Japanese woodblock prints, Opie 'paints' using a variety of media and technologies which enable him to make three-dimensional explorations of his subjects.

Julian Opie lives and works in London.
