Brisbane born street artist, Anthony Lister, is holding his latest body of work titled “Culture is Over” from July 17th at the now-vacant Porky’s Strip club in the red-light strip of Sydney’s Kings Cross. His new exhibition is mixed media, incorporating elements of film, sculpture, painting and live performances during the exhibition.

 

Lister, is one of the world’s premiere street artists, having designed large-scale street artworks that have been commissioned globally from Milan to London to New York and more locally across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Lister’s work is distinguishable through its harsh use of colour, lineage and graphics, merging high and low cultural imagery, which the artist describes as “Contemporary Mythological Paintings”. If you live in Sydney or Melbourne, you’ve more than likely seen or tried to take an artistic pic of one of Lister’s many vibrant artworks, even if you didn’t know it was his. More recently, Lister has collaborated with the likes of bigger name brands including HermesVogueSamsungMercedes-Benz and more.

 

Culture Is Over will feature over 56 new works from the artist, developed at his local studio in Leichardt. The body of work explores Sydney’s local mythology and mystery, ranging from the fatal fire at Sydney’s Luna Park in the 1970’s to the local witch of Kings Cross, all exhibited in Lister’s experimental style.
