Artists: Anthony Lister
Location: The Outsiders London
Dates: Friday 16th of November 2012 to Saturday 22nd of December 2012
Australian superstar-in-waiting Anthony Lister takes over both The Outsiders gallery spaces in our monumental final exhibition of the year.
Unslung Heroes features Impressionist portraits of after-party revellers, dominated by a red, black and white colour palette. Hedonistic yet elegant, the canvases exemplify Lister’s poetic treatment of highbrow and lowbrow themes, and old masters-meet-street art painting style.
Lister's work for Unslung Heroes truly represents yet another step forward for the artist, who broke his auction record this year when his 2007 piece Spider Woman sold for AUS $20,000. The exhibition, also containing refined sculptural work, is the first to occupy both Outsiders galleries since David Choe made his UK debut in 2008.
Unslung Heroes opens to the public at both galleries on November 16th 2012.
