Julian Opie (born 1958) is a visual artist and one of the New British Sculpture movement participants. Opie was born in London in 1958 and raised in Oxford. He graduated in 1983 from Goldsmiths, University of London, where he was taught by conceptual artist and painter Michael Craig-Martin. He emerged as an influential figure in the British art scene of the 1980s after producing a series of painted metal sculptures that humorously combined loosely painted imagery with steel shapes. Portraits and animated walking figures, rendered with minimal detail in black line drawing are hallmarks of the artist’s style. His themes have been characterized by their "engagement with art history, use of new technology, obsession with the human body" and his themes "work with one idea across different media". When asked to describe his approach, Opie said "I often feel that trying to make something realistic is the one criteria 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?"
