Lister

One of my favourite artists is Anthony lister.

He’s a prominent brissy artist who has found success nationally and overseas with exhibitions and workshops in New York and beyond. He's got a great style and churns out the works with annoying regularity (annoying because i wish i could paint as much as he does).

He first came to my attention when he was commisioned by the city of Brisbane to paint all of the electrical boxes on the sides of streets - some sort of attempt to beautify the city - but his works can now be found everywhere. street corners, wall murals, galleries...



I was reading something about him today when I realised I’d never written the kooky little fella up here in the illustrious pages of ‘out and about’ so here he is.

He’s got a great site that showcases his works, travels and exhibitions.
