The exhibit is a sort of survey of celebrity in relation to today's art world. The canvases in the show are also a sort of timeline of Lister's life: his interests, his social consciousness and his views of he future. You will note a variety of influences in the two pieces here.
Lister is an Australian artist and was part of Brisbane's street art movement. He moved to NYC in 2003 to apprentice with Max Gimblett. You can find out more about him at www.anthonylister.com.
