Warhol didn't do a photoshop job, he actually painted those images.
If Warhol had "xeroxed" them you would have a point, but Fairey's "machine art" is nothing anyone with a scanner and photoshop/ illustrator couldn't do.
I'm looking beyond this poster and the entire body of "work" from this guy and he is a complete fraud and in turn gives the entire design community a bad name that anyone with a scanner, some source art and photoshop can "design.
I would be as well, but I was blind to the history of his stealing artwork and then not only calling it his own, but selling it in books, t-shirts, etc.
Again, was a fan until I found out the guy is a fraud.
The preemptive lawsuit says to me he is seeking to win in the court of public opinion, not a real court. He gets to put on record that he is some poor street artist that he is getting hosed by the man.
It would have worked if his entire career wasn't one big rip off.
Wall Street has Madoff and now design has Fairey.
This guy is a total thief. Dug his work until I found out that none of his work is his.
See this link for a breakdown of all his "work". Terrible.
