Julian Opie PortraitJulian Opie is a leading contemporary artist. He studied at Goldsmiths' College (1979-82) under Michael Craig-Martin, for whom he briefly worked as an assistant, and he emerged as an influential figure on the British art scene in the 1980s, with a series of painted metal sculptures.

Opie's distinctive graphic style exists in the form of billboard posters, album covers and LED screens. The artist approaches the work by reducing the features that distinguish individuals from each other to the bare minimum. With just a few lines he is able to characterise what makes us unique and recognisable.

Opie's work has been exhibited extensively in galleries and museums around the world.
