Take note Justin Bieber – THIS is how you do street art.
As the king of brat pop continues to cop flak for his attempts at graffiti on the Gold Coast, experienced Queensland street artist Anthony Lister has unveiled his latest work – a world-first restyling of a $375,000 Lamborghini Gallardo.
The LP 550-2 was transformed into a massive, moving piece of Lister artwork to raise funds for ToyBox International, a charity dedicated to raising funds to benefit sick and disadvantaged children.
The work was unveiled at the Barbagallo showroom in Perth on Friday, with Lister saying he wanted to make an impression both on the car, and the charity.
“Street art is all about expression, and being able to leave a lasting imprint on such an iconic car is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Lister said.
The mural, inspired by the luxury car, features a brooding dark background interspersed with trademark Lister flecks of colour making a unique version of the 320 km/h supercar.
Lister, one of Australia’s most renowned contemporary artists, is showing his latest exhibition Still Life Crisis in Perth. The exhibition’s run has been extended until the end of December.
