Rosanna Arquette, Larry Flint, Vidal Sassoon, Bret Easton Ellis… Alex Israel enlisted all those who’ve made the recent history of Los Angeles in Warhol-style interviews that he filmed in 2012 for the project As it Lays, whose logo was inspired by his own portrait.

 

Since then, the self-portrait of this artist born in 1982 has become a recurring feature of his work, which is semi autobiographical and includes paintings that he produces in the Warner Bros. workshops. Israel’s oeuvre isn’t just a declaration of love to Los Angeles as the cradle of a whole culture of art, cinema and television that floods the entire planet, it’s also a non-violent portrait of the art system in its current state, including in the way he exploits all that system’s quirks and aberrations. In its very form, Israel’s work is of a perverse sophistication that has very few rivals and that is frighteningly effective.
