Julian Opie

Julian Opie is one of Britain’s best-known contemporary artists. He has exhibited all over the world. His language is instantly recognizable with his reductive style evoking a visual and spatial experience of the world around us. Drawing influences from classical portraits, billboards and road signs, popular comics and Japanese woodcuts, the artist combines the clear visual language of modern life with the foundations of art history. The wide range of media and technologies, be it in silkscreen, vinyl, LCD, LED, lenticular and flocking, is not enough for Opie and he continues to push the boundaries of so-called traditional artistic practice.
