Australian artist Anthony Lister prepares for his latest solo exhibition over at L.A.'s New Image Gallery. This show (set to open from Feb.23 - April 7th 2012) is meant to combine his influences from street art, expressionism, and pop. Taking inspiration from from his immediate surroundings he paints the paradies of modern life.

His distinctive style is as visible tension between figuration and abstraction all painted with Lister's bold and daring style. For this new exhibition, he will create a number of renderings focusing on the central theme of the beautiful and the sometimes twisted form of the dancing ballerina. And here we have a rare look into Lister's creative process as the days lead up to the show's opening on Feb.23rd. Enjoy this behind the scenes teaser...
