Anthony Lister

Today I researched artists for the Pastiche project and came across an interesting artist called Anthony Lister. He is an Australian born painter and installation artist, and he makes some amazing street art style paintings. I absolutely love the paintings! I love abstract art and modern art anyway but there is just something about his paintings that is even more special. I read that he combines high and low culture. I’m not exactly sure what that means but my guess is that it means combining street art and classic painting. Whatever it is, it works! He takes his inspiration from many different genres and areas, including street art, expressionism, pop art, contemporary youth culture and television. I really like his style and the work that results from combining all those sources of inspiration. It would be so cool to be able to paint paintings like his. I would like to make a painting like that for the pastiche video. I’m not sure though how I would make a video out of it. Maybe a speeded up process video. I’m not good at all at editing videos so it may be a difficult process trying to make it look professional and the way I imagine it. I guess I must keep searching for other possible subjects too
