Robert Fontaine Gallery, located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, will showcase new works by Australian artist Anthony Lister in a solo exhibition entitled â€œNever Odd Or Even.â€ The opening reception will be held during Wynwoodâ€™s Second Saturday Art Walk. The exhibit will be on view May 11 through May 25.Â Lister is most interested in breaking down the ideals of highbrow and lowbrow, calling graffiti art â€œthe final frontier in true artistic integrity.â€ He says, â€œIâ€™m disguising myself as a fine artist until the revolution is fully here.â€ This notion is demonstrated in his recent series of ballerina paintings, which will be on display during â€œNever Odd Or Even.â€ These fluid motion paintings are at once painterly and delicate, while also high energy, confrontational, and bold.Â â€œHis works live on the street and bleed harmoniously into the formal contemporary gallery setting,â€ says gallery director Robert Fontaine. â€œTo have the opportunity to showcase Lister’s work is hugely important for both the gallery and the Miami art scene.â€ As an Australian artist, Lister is concerned with the inherent prisoner and crime culture of his homeland, noting that heâ€™s constantly talking about social conditions, especially the lack of guidance amongst males today.Â He claims to have â€œmultiple creative personality disorderâ€ and works with a variety of aliases on street art around the world. With â€œNever Odd Or Even,â€ we can expect both gallery paintings and large-scale mural art in Wynwood. Â Robert Fontaine Gallery is open noon-5 p.m., Monday through Saturday and by appointment; 305-397-8530; email@example.com.
