Wir freuen uns den australischen Künstler Anthony Lister als nächsten Artist in Residence im Wiener MuseumsQuartier ankündigen zu dürfen. Neben einem Werk für die #Streetartpassage wird eine Einzelausstellung in der Jan Arnold Gallery zu sehen sein.

We’re happy to announce Anthony Lister as the next artist doing a monthlong residence in Viennese MuseumsQuartier as well as a solo show at Jan Arnold Gallery.

Anthony lister ist Pionier der Stencil- und Streetartbewegung in Australien bevor er 2003 nach New York übersiedelt. Aus seinen künstlerischen Wurzeln in der Kunstströmung des Streetart hat Lister einen differenzierten malerischen Stil entwickelt. In seinen Bildern, Skulpturen und Installationen kulminieren Hochkultur und Massenkultur. Rüpelhafte Superhelden, sexy Balletttänzerinnen, schlecht gelaunte Gentlemen und gebieterische Vamps sind die Zirkusfigur ähnlichen Protagonisten in seinen kontroversen Bildwelten, welche bereits in Einzelausstellungen in Sydney, Miami, New York, London, Los Angeles oder Hong Kong zu sehen waren.

Australian born artist Anthony Lister helped pioneer the stencil and street art movement in Australia before moving to New York in 2003. In addition to a strong background in street art he employs a sophisticated, fine art, painterly style. High and lowbrow culture clash in the content of his paintings, drawings and installations – boorish superheroes, flirtatious ballet dancers, bad-tempered old masters and imperious vamps raucously co-exist in his imagery. His contradictory, often carnivalesque, layered action paintings have hung on the walls of solo exhibitions at galleries in Sydney, Miami, New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong.

Artist Statement / Kommentar des Künstlers:
The duality of man comes as both a blessing and a curse. To know ones demons is to know ones self. People don’t change they just get better at being themselves. All of my idols have been addicts. True beauty comes out of those that are true to themselves. I don’t look in the mirror because I prefer to focus on who I am rather than what I am. Being a painter is both a blessing and a curse. As I paint I realise that the many problems in painting often look similar to the solution. Recognising it is hardest part. – Anthony Lister
