Julian Opie Elena and Cressie get ready for the party 4

Julian Opie Elena and Cressie get ready for the party 4 is an original screenprint from a series of six screenprints on 4mm perspex with inkjet background sheets, presented in aluminum frames specified by the artist. This print is signed and numbered from the edition of 30.

Julian Opie’s distinctive reductive style draws from diverse influences including billboards, classical portraiture and sculpture, dance, Japanese woodblocks, and cartoons. His work comprises silhouettes, animations, LED animations, and simplified portraits and landscapes (such as Landscape? from 1998-99, a screen print of trees, grass, and sky in a flat pictorial rendering that recalls a child’s puzzle). Employing a variety of media and technologies to make “paintings” of his subjects, Opie distills everyday images and experiences into concise but evocative signs and pictograms.

Julian Opie is a contemporary British artist known for his distinctive depictions of figures, portraits, and landscapes. The highly stylized treatment Opie gives his subjects—whereby features are created by thick black outlines and filled in with solid areas of flat color—is a blend of Pop Art and Minimalism with a wholly contemporary sensibility. Julian Opie Elena and Cressie get ready for the party 4 is a good example. The process of reading things as simulations but knowing at the same time that they are real is quite central to my work,” Opie has observed of his own art. Born in 1958 in London, United Kingdom, Opie studied with Michael-Craig Martin at Goldsmiths in London during the early 1980s. His earliest works consisted of painted steel sculptures exploring the relationship between visual and spatial observation. Over time, the artist has expanded his practice to include painting, installation, and cover art for albums. The artist’s works are part of the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and others. Opie currently lives and works in his hometown of London, United Kingdom.
