Unframed, 2 pieces of stretched canvas

This dark diptych done by the Abstract Expressionist graffiti artist Anthony Lister is characterized by the haunting lines of the eyes. Although not overtly figurative, it is obvious from the eyes and the tightly parsed mouth that each painting forms a face. The rouge of the lips project a feminine entity, in stark contrasts to the black paint forming the majority of the face.

Signature: Each signed in acrylic lower right "Lister"
