Influenced by billboards and cartoon imagery, Julian Opie is well-known for his ability to distill everyday portraits into simple, yet evocative, silhouettes and pictograms. Here, he uses broad lines to depict a woman taking off a yellow shirt on a red background.

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.
