Anthony Lister


One of Australia's most internationally renowned contemporary artists, Lister's work presents a grimy fusion of high and lowbrow culture with influences from a number of areas and genres, including street art, expressionism, pop art and contemporary youth culture, often drawing from television and the "misguided role models" that result. Revelling in the "spirituality" and the "heritage" of Western popular culture he takes this joint legacy and remoulds it into something equally alluring and grotesque, a perfect representation of the society he seeks to depict. These works are seen in galleries across the globe with solo exhibitions across Australia, United States, Europe and UK.

Taking influence from the dirtier and rough techniques of "Bad" Painting and merging it with the spirit and practices of graffiti art Lister has embraced an explosive, scratchy, scrawling form of figurative aesthetic using a variety of mediums from painting, drawing and installation to film, music and VR technology.
