Soon the exhibition #AlexIsrael comes to an end, and the group exhibition Los Angeles: A Fiction will be installed. It requires a huge team effort when Astrup Fearnley Museet install new exhibitions.
During the installation of the exhibition #AlexIsrael, Astrup Fearnley Museet had a visit from Alex Israel’s collaborating artists, Andrew Pike who works with the sceninc art department at Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles. This is the man who transformed the white walls of the museum into dreamlike images of Los Angeles with hand-painted palm trees and pastel-colored sunsets. In this interview, we talk to Andrew about his exciting job, as one of the few remaining backdrop painters in the world!
