The Book This publication explores the work of Julian Opie, one of Britain's most influential living artists. Since graduating from art school in the early 1980s and bursting onto a pre-Young British Artists art scene in London, Opie has influenced the wider field of popular culture more than any other artist of his generation. Published to accompany the exhibition Julian Opie at the National Gallery of Victoria, this 264-page title features a wide range of works, each distilling elements of the natural, urban and figurative world to their essence. In addition, the publication contains essays by NGV curators Dr Simon Maidment and Pip Wallis, with commentary by Justin Clemens, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Melbourne; Elisabeth R. O'Connell of the British Museum; and architect Jack Self, as well as quotes from Julian Opie himself The Print Printed by Riot of Colour in London under the supervision of Julian Opie using the artist's original files, the lenticular print Amelia. 2018 is included in an envelope in the end page of the limited edition catalogue.
