During the last couple of days, Anthony Lister (interviewed), who just came back from Miami’s Art Basel (coverage) and who also had a show recently in his home country of Australia (covered), is once again making his mark in the city of Los Angeles. As he did during the last summer, he once again has taken over the Barracuda Wall but this time he has painted a ape-themed mural which truly shows Lister’s range and amazing technique in full view.
The mural is actually part of an advertising campaign for the 20th Century Fox film, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the final touches by the artist will be completed this Monday morning during a press conference announcing the blu-ray release of the smash box office hit. The entire painting has taken place at night and it will continue for at least one more go-around.
Stay tuned for a look at the completed mural but in the meantime, check out these pics of Lister’s work and his incredible process taking place after the jump…
