Note:
The contemporary British artist Julian Opie is renowned for his distinctive, minimalist depictions of figures, portraits, and landscapes. His style blends Pop Art and Minimalism, characterized by black line drawings with minimal detail. Opie studied at Goldsmiths with Michael Craig-Martin and initially created painted steel sculptures. As part of the New British Sculpture group, he expanded into painting, installations, and album cover art for bands like Blur. Opie once stated, when asked about his artistic approach: “I often feel that trying to make something realistic is the one criterion I can feel fairly sure of. Another one I sometimes use is, would I like to have it in my room? And I occasionally use the idea, if God allowed you to show Him one [portrait] to judge you by, would this really be it?”
