Ralph Lazar is a South African artist, currently based in California.
He chronicles his own life and the world around him, contemporaneously documenting current affairs by creating art in real-time as the news unfolds, and combining this with a stream-of-consciousness self-expression inspired by people, words, music and travel.
His work has been showcased at Art Basel Miami, The LA Art Show, Art Palm Springs and Art Market San Francisco amongst others.
Recurring themes he explores are geopolitics, race relations, Civil Rights, US Presidential history, the US Supreme Court and the US Constitution.
Volume 1 of OF OUR TIMES is now out.
The book documents Lazar’s first 218 pieces, from March 2016 to August 2019.
