Born in 1979 in Brisbane, Australia, Anthony Lister began painting on the streets at the age of 17, a location which has endured as a key part of his practice and is influential to his studio work. As one of Australia's most renowned contemporary artists, Lister's work presents us with 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. Reveling in the "spirituality" and the "heritage" of Western popular culture, he takes this joint legacy and remolds it into something equally alluring and grotesque, a perfect representation of the society he seeks to depict. 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 art using a variety of mediums from painting, drawing and installation to film and music. Give Anthony Lister a follow on Instagram @anthonylister for a look at all his latest work.
