The Robert Fontaine Gallery presents “Never Odd or Even”, a solo show from the one and only Anthony Lister. Featuring a selection of new works including his most recent ballerina murals, the show will bring his signature graffiti strokes to the realm of fine art and formal gallery setting. He states “I’m disguising myself as a fine artist until the revolution is fully here.” The work blends Lister’s highly energetic strokes of the street with a delicate and painterly appearance.
The exhibition runs until May 25th at the Robert Fontaine Gallery, 2349 NW 2nd Ave Miami, Florida 33127.
On another note, check out Anthony Lister’s new mural in Los Angeles, painted at theAudience.

During our recent trip to Edinburgh, Endoftheline caught up with our friend Elph. We thought we’d would do a feature on him. He is a multi talented artist who creates a broad range of artwork from drawing and painting to design and typography.
Based in Edinburgh, his artwork can be spotted in bars, clubs and walls throughout the city. Beginning with painting and drawing it was only a matter of time before he entered the UK street art scene in 1989, to a welcoming audience.
Joining the Many Styles crew in 1994 and founding Los Vampyrs in 1998, Elph continues to draw, paint and play with type as much as he can. His graffiti is unquestionably left field and his 3d and graphic work outshines us all.
His interests include intergalactic space travel and ping pong; his influences include comic books and Lord of the Rings.
For more information, do check out his blog, facebook and Flickr page.

A year or so ago we were in sunny Buenos Aires; throwing blue paint everywhere, chatting to the locals and working on a large scale mural for Meeting of Styles. Not a year later we were happy to hear the news that Alex Fakso was to visit the city, and here is a brilliant record of his time there with an insight into this process and attitude to photography and the subjects he chooses.
Fakso is a great photographer, representing a world that we cannot see. An avid capturer of street art in the process, his photos show real life people with real life issues in real life dirty dark tunnels. Let’s just say on his trip to Buenos Aires he didn’t get much sun, instead lied low, stayed dangerous and got on with it.
Having already released a couple of great books on his work, Fakso is storming his way through street art urban culture and telling us how it is. A graffiti writer himself, he claims he is now not telling the stories, but creating the pictures. Part of the reason for his move from street art to photography was due to the way photography captures more attention to detail than the painting on the wall can. Not to mention a photograph is forever, and walls get painted over.
The video below, filmed by Dscreet for Very Nearly Almost, documents Fakso’s trip to Buenos Aires alongside some words about his work. Check it out!

‘Organized Chaos’ is a new solo exhibition at Backwoods Gallery (Melbourne) showcasing the work of Slicer, founding member of Melbourne’s AWOL CREW. The show culminates a striking collection of Slicers work, both abundant in colour and texture; which explores the surrealistic notion of automatism – ‘the performance of actions without conscious thought or intention’. The paintings reveal a mind blowing mash up of paint, paper, canvas and burnt wood in what some call ‘graffuturism’. A ‘synchronized explosion’ comes to mind when looking at Slicers work; and not only is it seen on the streets, but the works are available to own.
If you are in the area we suggest you check it out!
Slicers work has also been featured at The Age Media Gallery and National Gallery of Victoria in Australia, as well as at the Confluence Gallery in Paris. To see more of Slicers work, see his Flickr and Instagram.
Organized Chaos will be opening on Friday the 15th of March at Backwoods Gallery and running until Sunday the 31st. For any enquiries email

EndoftheLine are trying to raise awareness after the mural created for the Darksiders 2 was painted over by Hackney Council. Though we are respectful of the fact that residents do not want wanton vandalism we feel that the council need to consider work done with permission, and also the nature of the artwork as well as the area. It has been a constant struggle to try and get anyone to own up to the responsibility of what is happening which seems to be repeatedly blamed on a small fraction of residents in the area. What is also frustrating is that the council seem to be contradicting their policies on graffiti which states “Hackney Council have no authority to immediately remove graffiti from buildings that we do not own or manage.’ (See Policy here) We have no record of the council speaking to the person(s) that gave us the permission to paint this wall. However, along with business owners, local residents have helped us start a campaign to support and recreate those destroyed artworks at the expense of the council, though it doesn’t lighten our spirits about the lost time and effort that was spent, it is great to know that we have this support. Unfortunately EndoftheLine are not the only ones to be affected by this unlawful takedown; Nychos & Vibes also had their monumental work taken down at The Foundry in Old Street. We would love to have everyones support to back us, if you would like to have your say about the situation please sign our petition here. Many thanks to all that have signed this already!

The sun was out and we painted three different spots in East London.. One street side spot, one old carpark and one brand new yard. BOOOOM
Some amazing artists came out to collaborate with EndoftheLine inc. SheOne, O Two, Robot Rock, Elfin, Candy & of course our very own Probs.
We are looking for more girl artists to make this scene look good and counteract the macho bullshit that has been going around. Get in touch !
