Julian Opie is one of Britain’s leading contemporary artists and has been making portraits since the 1990s. Inspired by the world around him, Julian uses a bold style to record the people he sees, often reducing faces into simple shapes.
NGV Kids presents an interactive exhibition for families, featuring hands-on and digital activities developed in collaboration with the artist. In this studio, Julian invites you to create a portrait in a new way. You can try constructing a head using felt shapes or create a digital self-portrait using only line and colour.
