Anthony Lister - "Your Artwork is Just Not That Good"
Anthony Lister has no respect for LA. He has demonstrated it time and time again when he has come to the city and disrespected local artists getting up in the city. Like here, it may be a small thing, but there is absolutely no reason to cap the sticker from Struh, and half a sticker from Borat. There is plenty of other room on this same pole, and the way you capped others just shows that you have no respect for what is really happening on the streets.
Sure, you travel all over the world painting murals and showing in exclusive galleries. However, quantity does not make quality, and because your art agents don't seem to want to tell you, its time someone does. Consider this a street art intervention. Someone had to tell you sometime. "Anthony Lister, your artwork is just not that good".
Your artwork is an acquired taste. It is something that someone can be taught to love and appreciate, if someone tells you to love and appreciate it. But on its own, your style is sloppy and simply not very aesthetically pleasing. You are one of the biggest names in the street art game, but you are far from one of its greatest talents.
There are rules to the streets and there is artistic talent. We are calling you out for lacking in both. We know you will read this, like you did before. If you have something to say in response, don't send your LA graffiti friends to try and threaten us again. M&F is always on the streets, and the streets are always watching and listening.
