The Bobby Fischer Of Drawing

 

Born in 1983, Listen04 is the product of a tractor mechanic, a young high school drop out and a broken condom.

His father would go on to commit suicide when the young artist was just five years old, leaving him to find his own way in a world full of questions.

Listen04’s work is him attempting to answer those questions, on paper, with pens, pencils & paint.

 

“Boring and generic” Jerry Saltz, New York Magazine

“His art looks like shit & he obviously has a fucked up head, but he is serious about being funny & that’s all I need to give a fuck.” Anthony Lister

“He should have been an abortion” Name undisclosed (Artist’s mother)
