Julian Opie (English, b. 1958) is an internationally renowned artist, best known for his distinctive black-line figures which blend Pop Art and Minimalism. Opie first emerged onto the art scene in the 1980s when he produced a series of painted metal sculptures. Since then, he has drawn upon classical portraiture, Japanese woodblock prints, public signage, and computer-generated graphics to create clean visual images of modern life and explore the idea of representation. His contemporary portraits and animated walking figures, outlined in bold black lines and placed on backgrounds of solid color, have been exhibited worldwide. His works are also included within the collections of the Tate, the British Museum, MoMA, The Israel Museum, and the Takamatsu City Museum in Japan, among others.
