“The first rule of painting is to take everyone else out of the equation".
- Anthony Lister
According to Wikipedia, the Australian born Anthony Lister fits best in the "low brow" category; for us at WM he is street art High Society and Wynwood royalty. Making every visit to Miami count, Lister is possibly the international artist with the most murals ever painted in the Wynwood area, not to mention numerous exhibitions in the fine arts arena.
Represented in Miami by Robert Fontaine Gallery, Anthony Lister has become an important part of the local street art landscape. Succesfully incorporating street art with his studio practice, Anthony Lister's perfectly timed murals in Wynwood with his exhibitions at Robert Fontaine Gallery blend like a cohesive performance revolving around his persona. His figurative, wide stroke depictions of urban characters work well at any scale, and are equally rebellious on the side of an industrial building or in the art gallery setting.
His signature painterly strokes are mature and defiant. Allowing Lister to explore a visual conversation that redefines style and subject matter of traditional street art with authority.
