    In a new body of work at Lisson Gallery’s Mayfair space, Julian Opie combines two subjects that have been central to his artistic career: people and architecture. Through a series of group portraits alongside an installation of contemporary tower blocks, the exhibition depicts the interconnectivity of the urban environment, be it the commuters criss-crossing through the streets or the overlaid housing units of a typically overpopulated city. Few artists have captured the modern world as consistently and convincingly as Opie; here we experience the complexity of the cosmopolitan city through Opie’s radical, simplified style: a particularly poignant scene considering the rare isolation on the streets at the time of the exhibition’s conception.
