We are delighted to announce the launch of a new series of editions, entitled Running People., by Julian Opie.
Julian Opie (b.1958) is an artist of contemporary life, using urban and rural landscapes, as well as moving figures, to bring time-honoured artistic genres into the twenty-first century. Working in a variety of media, Opie draws inspiration from both high art, design and the vernacular; lightbox advertising, billboard signs, Japanese Manga, seventeenth and eighteenth-century portraiture, nineteenth-century silhouettes, Roman busts and ancient Egyptian art. His new series consists of twelve anodised aluminium editions depicting running figures and is now available to purchase. Also illustrated below are selected works by Opie made and released earlier in 2020 and available for sale.
The works are being offered on a "first-come, first-served" basis and only a limited number of editions are available.
Please view the works below and contact [email protected] if you would like to receive prices or require any further information. As the gallery is currently closed to the public, we are not able to answer telephone enquiries for this edition.
