Through the clever mixing of “high” and “low” brow cultural imagery, Lister’s paintings and sculptures are studies in which he dissects themes and subjects such as misguided youth, ballerinas, strippers, contemporary mythology and crime. Lister has become one of the most influential street artists of all time.
