Julian Opie

Damon, singer. 2000 ( Blur )

I was already quite familiar of Julian Opie’s work starting this project as it is incredibly famous and in a way I wasn’t taking inspiration from him but found that my work with the line art portraits had been heavily linked to Julian Opie from talking to people around me and so consciously have been taking influence from him. When I decided to look into Julian Opie’s work I did see the way that they have influenced me in the thick lines that have been used for the face and the way that they are simple but effective as they are not overdone or overworked, and the colours used are different as his colour pallet is quite different to my own. The way that he includes the face is interesting to me as he does seem to use a similar face in each of his painted portraits which is quite recognizable to be his style.
