Anthony Lister Collaborates With Volcom On New Collection

Volcom is proud to collaborate with modern street impressionist Anthony Lister for a unique limited collection that explores the themes of money and corruption as it relates to the modern cyber state. Anthony Lister’s passion and commitment to social commentary fills us with pride to be able to work with such an artist whose spirit is the embodiment of True To This!

“Anthony approaches street art like no one else, with a looseness that’s hard to get even in a studio. I’ve been a fan for over a decade and excited to merge the endless creative exploration of Volcom with the vibrant brilliance of this fine individual.” -Mike Aho, Volcom Global Creative Director


Born in 1979 in Brisbane, Australia, Anthony Lister began painting on the streets at the age of 17, a location which has endured as a key part of his practice and is influential to his studio work. As one of Australia’s most renowned contemporary artists, Lister’s work presents us with a grimy fusion of high and lowbrow culture with influences from a number of areas and genres, including street art, expressionism, pop art and contemporary youth culture. Reveling in the “spirituality” and the “heritage” of Western popular culture, he takes this joint legacy and remolds it into something equally alluring and grotesque, a perfect representation of the society he seeks to depict. Taking influence from the dirtier and rough techniques of “Bad” Painting and merging it with the spirit and practices of graffiti art, Lister has embraced an explosive, scratchy, scrawling form of figurative art using a variety of mediums from painting, drawing and installation to film and music.
