About Julian Opie

Julian Opie (English, b. 1958) graduated from Goldsmiths College in 1982. His work involves the transformation of photographs (or short films) into figurative reproductions (created using computer software, including digitally enhanced drawings, photography, and animation). His series, “Imagine you are…,” demonstrates how activities such as driving, walking, and climbing can be represented with simple reductions. In addition, Opie uses sculpture and light installations to present items of everyday life.
