Anthony Lister Solo Opens in Italy

Anthony Lister Wall

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.



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.

Anthony Lister Things

One of the most talented painters/street artists around is, without a doubt, Anthony Lister. If I could have one artist paint a wall in my house, he’d be way up on that list. Unfortunately I am not a celebrity like Bam Margera. At least we can all still admire the work Lister’s doing at Bam’s house.

The other news is the Lister print that was released today at Paper Monster. Unfortunately, it has already sold out.

Great In ’08: Klone Says…

This is part of Vandalog’s “Great in ’08” series, which will be running every day for the rest of the month. Check out previous posts here. Street artists from across the world have been given one post to give away to an artist (or two) who they feel has been doing great work recently. Today it’s Klone‘s turn (you can check out Vandalog’s recent Q&A with Klone here).

Who is one artist doing really great work right now?

Klone: Anthony Lister comes to my mind immediately. He is a great artist, one to follow for sure, that’s all agreed, but there’s more to my appreciation of Lister. It’s the fact he came from Australia, disconnected from the rest of the world and having to put more into getting himself out, I know the feeling exactly as Israel is like an island, sea on one side and rival countries on the others; now how you get yourself recognized outside of the island?
