Consisting of two prints, one set in London and the other in Seoul, Julian Opie’s Walking In The Rain series is one of the artist’s most iconic works. Each print in the series shows a set of full-length figures striding across the picture plane in a frieze-like composition that works to produce a realistic and vibrant street scene.

As with many of Opie’s depictions of people, each figure in the series is rendered faceless with a blank circle as a head. Despite this, the series shows great variety in the figures’ movement, clothing and footwear so as to distinguish between the passers-by. Colourful umbrellas dominate the top of the image and Opie portrays an abundance of technology, working to create a highly dynamic image.
