"Gary (real title)" by Julian Opie
Here are some Julian Opie facts that my research has unearthed. He is not the young rebel that I had assumed. In fact he is two years older than me (56). He has pictures hanging in the Tate, and the MoMA as well as on a British stamp. Big Question: is this a portrait of me? (Julian’s secret mentor). Fact: it is from 1998 - when I was sporting long hair and a goatee. Interesting, it could be me. If you know my work, the end of that decade also signaled the beginning of my “Blue Period”. Let’s see what Julian’s next move is.
