1. <strong>Alex Israel: New Waves</strong>
Artist Alex Israel might be Los Angeles' biggest fan. All of his work is inspired by the City of Angels, where he grew up, and often references surfing, Hollywood and celebrity culture. In this exhibition at Gagosian—his first in Hong Kong—he presents a series of glossy paintings of waves that evoke the glamour of his hometown.
Alex Israel: New Waves runs until August 11 at Gagosian, 7/F Pedder Building, 12 Pedder Street, Central; +852 2151 0555; gagosian.com
