Anthony Lister 'Brooklyn Dealer As Hero'

Regular price $8,500.00

Among Australia’s most renowned contemporary artists, Anthony Lister revels in the friction between high and lowbrow culture. Fusing youth culture, pop art and expressionism, his high-impact work rings of an artist fed on street art. In ‘The Brooklyn Dealer as Hero’, Lister applies his figurative dynamism to the notion of heroes. More downtown than cape donning, Lister’s heroes subvert the stereotype - offering a more riveting, albeit grittier alternative to just “saving the day”.‘The Brooklyn Dealer as Hero’ derives from Lister’s popular Heroes Series. It formed part of an exhibition of his work at Metro Gallery in Armadale in 2007, but due to its ‘scandalous’ subject matter was not hung. With excellent provenance and signed, dated and copyrighted by Lister himself, why not exhibit this unsung hero in your home?
