Julian Opie created this painting by making a stencil from a photograph of a real person. There are other ‘Garys’ – In 1998, a series of them was created in colour in four different sizes, small, medium, large and extra large. They look a bit like this Gary, but some of them have longer, messier hair. Some wear beaded necklaces, and some have beards.
What do you think Gary is like? Is he in a band? If so, what kind of music do they play? Do you like his music? What might happen at one of his concerts? Can you write a review of his concert?
