Nine times out of ten, Anthony Listers’ work leaves me absolutely blown away. That’s why I was so pleased to hear that he has a solo show called “The Pain of Feeling” opening tomorrow at KGallery in Italy. The above photo is from a wall that he’s painted at KGallery.
IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE
“THE PAIN OF FEELING”
THE ITALIAN SOLO EXHIBITION
OF ANTHONY LISTER,
FROM MARCH 7 TO APRIL 11, 2009
The show will present new, unreleased works by the artist
Born in Brisbane 30 years ago, based in New York for 3 years, Anthony Lister comes back to Italy with new works.
After the 2007 edition of Allarmi in Como, the group exhibition entitled Kick off at KGallery in 2007 and the solo exhibition “God’s got a plan to kill me” in April 2008, the new Lister’s exhibition entitled “The Pain of Feeling” open in KGallery, Legnano, on March 07 (until April 11, 2009).
Anthony Lister, indeed one of the most sensational contemporary artists, paints on large canvas taking inspiration from street art as well as ordinary life. Superheroes are revisited and deformed through an almost minimal style. A style that becomes absolutely individual and recognizable, 100% original despite the overexposure of the icons. “The work is about sexual content online – Anthony Lister says about “The Pain of Feeling – and the drive for young women to behave like their misguided rolmodels”
Lister’s solo exhibitions in the past months, scattered all around the world, from London to New York, from Melbourne to San Francisco, from Miami to Los Angeles, have made some of his works true relics, at the center of discussions in the world of collectionism.
