Anthony Lister - Anthony Lister Born 1980 was mentored by Max Gimblett in New York in 2002 and was the recipient of the 2004 Queensland Education Minister's Art Award, with a further mentoring workshop residency at Blender Studio, Melbourne. Lister completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Queensland College of the Arts, Brisbane.
Through an exploration of the figure, tattooing, graffiti and the urban-scape, Lister reflects on the world around him and how it changes him.
His audience is captivated by provocative fragments of subjects left unconcealed, and wonders at the significance of the final image. His works are a series of screens that mask the evolutionary genesis of the finished picture. Each canvas has its place in the timeline of Lister's life, revealing his passing interests, social consciousness, and intents.
Revealing messages about our social environment and curiosity about where these new maps may take us, Lister is a young artist with his eye definitely towards the future. Anthony has 2 murals in the LA Freewalls Project: ‘TITLE’ and community favorite ‘Girl with Rainbow Eyes’.
