Pop Culture Twister Mister Anthony Lister

Brooklyn-based artist Anthony Lister and I share a common view – that the “heroes” that are presented through the media, that surround us at every step, are often misguided, and less glamorous than we perceive them to be. As someone who’s worked behind the scenes in television and film for many years, I know this one all too well and can relate to his ennui, but I do love how he interprets this world through his art.

With his art, Lister splashes this message anywhere he can – any way he can, using stickers, markers, and aerosol paint, drawing from his past experiences growing up in Brisbane, Australia, his travels around the world, and his life as a husband and father of two. His subject matter usually revolves around the pop culture icons that have populated his sphere – skateboarding, comic book superheroes, tattoos, television, graffiti, pop culture, advertising, jail birds, the internet and Aussie celebrity gangsters.

He’s also shown his work around the globe in exhibitions both in museums and on the streets, all over Australia, the U.S., the U.K. and Europe. He’s been featured on many art-related websites such as Juxtapoz.com, FecalFace.com and WoosterCollective.com. And something tells me this is just the beginning…

Check out more of his awesome work on his website.
