Adam Lister received his B.F.A. in painting from The School of Visual Arts in New York in 2003. Inspired by the 8-bit graphics of Atari and Nintendo game consoles, Lister's unique style deliberately avoids all use of diagonal and curved lines and echoes the geometric structure of Cubism. Lister selects the recognizable artworks or popular cultures icons to deconstruct their images by his methods. He displays and connects the relationship between past and contemporary, by cleverly using his aesthetic of low-pixelated graphics and the soft, tonal mark of watercolor paint. Lister lives in New York and exhibited including the Guy Hepner Gallery, New York, the Spoke Art Gallery, San Francisco and White Walls Gallery, San Francisco.
