mixed messages in 3D poster portrait of Julia Gillard

This three dimensional poster-portrait of the Australian Prime Minister is to be found on one of those non-specific telecommunication boxes outside the Ian Potter House at the Melbourne end of Canberra. It’s another play on the Redhead matchbox theme. Here we see the Afghan artist Khalid Ali capturing the image on his iPhone. The poster appears to have been complicated by the addition of the grafftti’d  slogan “bring the troops home”. And the poster appears to be signed “Lister” – and Uncle Google wonders whether this could be the work of the graffiti/muralist artist Anthony Lister?
