Volcom is excited to announce the Anthony Lister Art Experience tour presented by Volcom, happening in Barcelona, Austin, TX and Mexico City, three burgeoning art scenes that are ripe for a Lister takeover. Coinciding with his collaborative Volcom X Lister apparel collection, the modern street impressionist's 3-stop global tour will see him exhibiting new pieces of work created specifically for each event. Links to the details for these unique evenings of indulgence can below found below: October 27th - Barcelona, Spain November 2nd - Austin, Texas November 10th - MXDF, Mexico City About Lister Born in 1979 in Brisbane, Australia, Anthony Lister began painting on the streets at the age of 17, a location which has endured as a key part of his practice and is influential to his studio work. As one of Australia's most renowned contemporary artists, Lister's work presents us with a grimy fusion of high and lowbrow culture with influences from a number of areas and genres, including street art, expressionism, pop art and contemporary youth culture. Reveling in the "spirituality" and the "heritage" of Western popular culture, he takes this joint legacy and remolds it into something equally alluring and grotesque, a perfect representation of the society he seeks to depict. Taking influence from the dirtier and rough techniques of "Bad" Painting and merging it with the spirit and practices of graffiti art, Lister has embraced an explosive, scratchy, scrawling form of figurative art using a variety of mediums from painting, drawing and installation to film and music. Give Anthony Lister a follow on Instagram @anthonylister for a look at all his latest work.

Most well known for his street art, Anthony Lister, the Australian modern impressionist artist's work can be enjoyed by anyone willing to take a drive around the city of Sydney. The democratization of street art is great for those fortunate enough to reside in or be able to travel to far off cities, but obviously art on the side of a building won't be traveling to a city near you, so we've gone photographed some of our favorite Lister pieces for you to enjoy where ever you are. And what would art be without a little interpretation, so along with each location's photos are our local photographer's personal take on what Lister is trying to say with the piece. In coming weeks Anthony Lister will be traveling to Barcelona, Austin, TX and Mexico City for a series of Volcom Stone Presents Anthony Lister Art Experience Happening events that will see the artist creating unique experiences in each city in celebration of the launch of his collaborative Volcom X Lister apparel collection. REDFERN - CARPARK Redfern is an area that has a strong and wonderful Indigenous community. Over the past few years Redfern has been through a rapid gentrification and a lot of the Aboriginal community that were happily living in Redfern were pushed out by development and unjust government decisions. This piece with the skeleton wearing ceremonial looking cloth and holding a flaming spear make me see the character as a freedom fighter to the plight of the Indigenous in the area and shows Lister's support for them. REDFERN - WORKSHOP Once again in Redfern and another strong indigenous character defending and honouring the Aboriginal community. Just behind this piece is "The Block" an area in Redfern that housed many Aboriginal families up until recently as it was knocked down for redevelopment. There was also a well known boxing gym for Indigenous youths which makes me think that is the reference to the boxing gloves and the defending vibe. I like to think this piece gives the community strength from within. Lister is so unreal to show his support so strongly and loudly. ALEXANDRIA - CARPARK Alexandria is a fairly industrial area, in the last few years there’s been a few cool cafes and stores pop up but in general it’s pretty boring and business. This super large scale, beautifully graceful and colorful ballerina Lister painted on a massive carpark wall is an incredibly generous update to a blandness on the main street. A perfect example of his work as he has mentioned he sees it as not vandalism but beautifying the world. BONDI - ICEBERGS POOL ENTRANCE The Bondi Icebergs pool is a serious swim spot all year round, looking over the whole of Sydney’s (or actually Australia’s) most iconic beach with a perfect Instagram-ready backdrop as you can imagine it's a selfie set up from hell. Opposite the entrance to the pool is a group of rollup garage doors that Lister has beautified. I like to think these characters get too enjoy looking over this view all day. Bondi can be kind of glamorous and very white linen and coconut water, so I love seeing Lister grime it up. BONDI - NORTH ROCKS This is an awesome jump off the rock swim spot at the North end of Bondi Beach. It's a well known - bring a beer and have a chat with all the mates - spot. Lister's green babe with pesky seagulls languidly lays on the rocks catching the rays all day and I'm sure listens in on the local gossip. PADDINGTON - OXFORD STREET This end of Oxford Street (one of Sydney's most notorious party streets) was just a few years back one of the main shopping zones in Sydney where independent fashion stores, book shops, art galleries and record stores were perused with a coffee in hand. Now a shell of its former self, most storefronts have "for lease" signs, but no one has any belief they will ever be occupied again. The rise of the super mall has taken over and cool areas like this can't compete. Lister's faces pepper the closed doors and brighten a once thriving street. TAYLOR SQUARE The party hub that once was, and still sometimes is. But just like the Paddington end of Oxford Street, has quietened down due to more unfortunately conservative and stuffy government decisions. Enforced early bar closing times in the city's most cranking party zones has left the streets kinda quiet. Lister's faces on closed doors here definitely throw color back where it once was and defiantly should be!

"Anthony approaches street art like no one else, with a looseness that’s hard to get even in a studio.
