Triple Play: Lister

Australian artist Anthony Lister’s been very busy in the weeks leading up to his solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, opening tomorrow night. It’s been a while since we last featured him here, but I’m glad to report he’s showing his former hometown some love by completing a number of murals in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Here are three of the five seven he’s done so far:

Triple Play: Chris Stain & Billy Mode

Artists Chris Stain and Billy Mode extended their long-standing collaboration to include 13 youths from creative-arts youth development organization Cre8tive YouTH*ink in their process. The result? Sign Language, a stunning mural on the side of 267 Pacific Street (at Smith Street), based on a photograph by legendary street photographer Martha Cooper.

Brooklyn’s own Faile are the latest to embellish the curated wall at the intersection of Houston and the Bowery. As noted by the L Magazine yesterday, this marks the duo’s first, large-scale, outdoor installation in Manhattan since pasting the facade of 11 Spring five years ago.
