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:

Lister is also the subject of the forthcoming Anthony Lister – Adventure Painter release from Gingko Press, authored by Roger Gastman and Tristan Manco.

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.
Billy Mode has just dropped Omni, a series of small edition, hand-sprayed, hand-cut, multi-layer, stencil prints available via Freshly Baked.

The last month has seen lots of new activity by old favorites. New wheatpastes have gone up in Brooklyn: Swoon and Over Under in Red Hook, ECB in Bushwick and Judith Supine in Williamsburg.
