Anthony Lister is a contemporary artist originally from Brisbane, Australia. He describes himself as an adventure painter, which is the perfect explanation for the way he works – reacting to his environment, scrawling his unique blend of figurative imagery on any surface that enters his peripheral.
Lister has been prolific in his approach to art-making, travelling the globe creating work for prestigious gallery shows, impromptu public art installations, and every imaginable situation in-between.
We had the opportunity to visit the artist’s Sydney studio, getting a tour of his artwork and inspirations, and capturing his process as he explored our range of art supplies – working charcoal, acrylics, and oil pastels into a new canvas original and finishing several others.
