Note: Initially taking photographs of his subject matter - be it of people, landscapes or still lives - he then digitally manipulates the photographs and constructs his images by a process of elimination and distillation, and through this practice has developed a concise and reductive formal language. Drawing from influences as diverse as billboard signs, 18th-century portraiture, popular comics and Japanese woodblock prints, Opie 'paints' using a vast array of media and technologies. His works have been realised in silkscreen, vinyl, LCD, LED, lenticular and flocking, and he continues to push the boundaries of ‘traditional' artistic practice.
