Anthony Lister’s tireless approach to living is an unrelenting approach to art. What is evident in his work is the inability to remove a man’s life from his creations.


Slouching for no borders (physical and metaphysical), as an artist he is omnipresent. Studio, gallery and museum shows aside, his name and imagery is on street corners worldwide accessing a massive audience by way of stickers, aerosol paint and all manner of markers.

His paintings, drawings, sculptures and happenings pull from his experiences as a youth in northern Australia and participating in the repetition as a father of two. Superheroes, skateboarding, graffiti, Australian gangster celebrities, television, jail birds, tattoos, the internet, pop and advertising resurface in his art practice …

Anthony Lister is living and he is translating real-life in real time. As the artist states “I am not trying to change the world… I am just reacting to a world that is trying to change me”
