“A decade ago, Anthony Lister decided that he would use the same sized sketchbook to plan and experiment in before beginning anything ‘concrete’. SKETCHBOOK features selected images from the order within his chaos over these past 10 years, all bound up to look as if it were a condensed version of the real thing.” the publisher.

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.

A trade edition of 2000 copies was also issued, this is the scarce limited edition of 100 deluxe copies, each with a different original artwork.
