This stunning piece of street art created by Anthony Lister hopes to raise awareness of police brutality through a creative project. The image is plastered on a brick wall in the streets of Los Angeles.

The Australian artist created this image, which features a skeleton police officer grabbing the collar of what appears to be a young male citizen. The police officer has his free hand pulled back and his hand is making a fist. This image by Anthony Lister took one day and one night complete.

When the artist arrived in Los Angeles, he began constructed this image as part of his exhibition for 'New Image Art' at the Superchief Gallery. The image was crafted using the artist's signature paint roller and multiple cans of spray paint. While the image aims to speak out against police brutality, it also adds an undertone of humor.
