He'll probably experience some serious copyright issues for if he expands!
Let's not forget that the "modern art market" is more likely the "Penny stocks market"... Many of you have already understood what i'm telling, but i'll explain a lil bit better.
The so called "Modern art critic" act like penny stocks speculators, they made some kind of "IPO deal" with those so called artists, buy a lot of their "masterpieces", and then use their reputation as "respected art critic" for launch this new "modern picasso" of the month. Then find a new "artist", rinse and repeat. the quality of the "art" is not very important nowadays.
it can be
his first exhibition was a VIP event in last fall, it wasn't open for the public, maybe that's why got away with it so far, recently there was an art fair in NYC where his artworks were being exhibited and sold, i guess it will turn out soon, he is a thief by nature though who doesn't give 2 fucks about copyright
there was this case, when he was sued and finally he was able to win the case: "Prince also settled a multi-year copyright infringement legal battle with photographer Patrick Cariou last year. Prince's usage of Cariou's photos was determined to be copyright infringement back in 2011, but an appeals court overturned the ruling in 2013, calling the appropriation "fair use.""
now that case is a bit different, because he actually modified that pic, whereas he doesn't really do that with the instagram images
I cannot believe this is happening and that people buy this bollocks
I wish he would steal my pic so I would sue him
By adding his own comment to somebody's image as part of the display, he transformed the context to one of fair use. Fair Use includes commentary, discussion, parody etc as parameters that create the exception to copyright, not just direct modification of the content.
And that's just not it -
All fun and games until he gets sued
Anyone that would buy that for 100K is out of their mind.
BUT...you are right...the REAL Instagram money is made offline...but not selling art. These hookers with their booking email in their bio are killing it. Trips to Dubai for $250 to get pooped on all day long. They are crushing it. Wire transfers alllll daaayyyy loooonnnggggg.
