Julian Opie

is a leading contemporary English artist, and one of my personal favorites.
Opie's work consists in two dimensional computer imagery and minimalised detail.
His style was brought into the public eye when he was asked to design the cover of Blur's Best Of album.
I love his simplicity, how easy he makes it look.
A few lines here and a circle there.
His way of using the sheer basics of geometry to build up beautiful images.
Julian Opie is most definitely a great influence and truly, to me ,a great artist.
