Anthony Lister has the whole Celebrity Artist thing down pat. His work is immediately recognisable, yet he is not. He can parade his art around major cities, and people will get all fangirl about it, but he can still go to his local Foodworks to buy a couple of bananas and a loaf of bread without being bombarded by iPhone paparazzi. Lister is a Brisbane-born, Sydney-dwelling, world-travelling artist who creates street art that stands apart from your run-ofthe-mill stencil artist and spray painters; this guy is a real painter – a real artiste. He has work on the street, Vogue and in galleries – he’s the real deal.
