Following a three-week-long viral ad campaign featuring mysterious "wanted" poster ads of lost superheroes splashed all over L.A, t-shirt purveyors Junk Food Clothing finally let us in on their new venture this weekend: the Junk Food Art House. Australian street artist Anthony Lister, known for his renderings of caped crusaders such as Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Aquaman, was at the launch of the brand's new arts program which also includes film and fashion projects. Lister says he's interested in superheros because, "they reference ancient mythological battles between heroes and villains, authority figures and survivalists, pseudo-equality and the general human condition today." The event also featured an old ice cream truck refurbished into a mobile pop-up shop and a video instillation. Lister exhibition is on view until August 29th at the HVW8 Art+Design Gallery.
