Faime Walking (2016), a double-sided electronic sculpture featuring a simplified moving image of a person in motion, is the first artwork to land in Oklahoma Contemporary’s Sculpture Garden. Installed adjacent to the walkway leading to the new building’s main entrance, this larger-than-life LED monolith display will reflect the movement of our visitors as they arrive and depart from the new arts center. In combination with the famous John F. Kennedy quote on American civilization inscribed along the walkway, we hope this installation inspires the sense of forward momentum embodied by Oklahoma Contemporary, the city and our art communities.

Using bold colors and distinctive lines, Julian Opie creates works across media that distill people, animals, landscapes and objects to their most elemental forms. The influences of Pop Art and Japanese woodblock prints can be seen in the playful color palettes and simplified lines of his fun, iconic portraits of people in motion and at rest. Opie’s works are part of significant museum collections around the world and have been included in public art installations from Indianapolis to Tokyo. The artist lives and works in London.
