Born, raised and based in Los Angeles, Alex Israel has been surrounded by and fascinated with the city's film and media industries. Channeling both the lifestyle and the slick appearance and aspirations of the entertainment capital, he approaches LA’s celebrity culture through the lens of both local familiarity and anthropological curiosity. He embraces clichés and styles alluding to California cool and calculated brand creation while exploring the American Dream embodied in the Los Angeles mythos. Referencing the movieAmerican Psycho, released in 2000 and starring Christian Bale, this work further exemplifies Israel’s fascination with film while addressing the mystical qualities of Hollywood. Produced in an edition of 100, each print is signed and numbered by the artist.
