This afternoon, we were lucky enough to catch Anthony Lister putting the finishing touches to his latest painting on Rivington Place, on a wall just outside the Cargo garden terrace. What you can’t see in these pictures is that on the other side of the gate, Banksy’s ‘Guard and Poodle’ is still displayed, now behind acrylic protection. ‘Lister is Over Stencils’ at the foot of the wall suggests Lister is having a bit of a poke at Banksy. And with this guy’s talent, why not?
I’ve only just become aware of Lister in the last few months and have started to really like his style as I notice more and more of his works popping up around London. It was great watching him work and I loved him playing up to his friend’s camera as he finished. The other painting shown below is his End of the Line panel for the White Canvas project.
