Brisbane-born street artist Anthony Lister quickly shot to fame in the mid-2000s as a leading force in a new group of contemporary art-makers working outside the traditional gallery system. Lister employs the medium of graffiti, spraypaint, stencilling and assemblage to create works which are urban in character yet still retain formal structures of composition and draughtsmanship. Much of Lister’s work relates to popular culture – comic books, super-heros, computer games and costume.

Lister lives in New York and exhibits internationally. His work is widely collected privately as well as institutions such as the National Gallery of Australia.

Printed in an edition of 2000 copies.
