Some of the biggest characters in the super-hero gallery of Marvel Comics, DC Comics, among others - Batman, Spiderman, Wolverine, etc. are the subject of very peculiar reinterpretations by Australian artist Anthony Lister. His work ranges from drawings and oil paintings to the most complex installations and performances. Nothing escapes the power of his sarcasm and the icons that lived in our childhood reads take on an entirely different dimension, which is definitely more human: they become fat, bloated, petty, ridiculous, past their prime.
However, it isn't the roughness inflicted by the artist on the Super Hero's aura that makes his work less interesting. The ridiculous clothes, molded to their perfect bodies explode in blots of colour and graphic effects and the shapes take on new movements. A bit like Roy Lichtenstein's pop art, they leave the world of Comics for the world of Art.
