Instead of coming up with his own art, this one artist is ripping pics from your Instagram account and then selling them for $100,000 a piece. Richard Prince, has filled the Gagosian Gallery in New York with 38 portraits all measure 65 by 48 inches each, of persons he found sifting through Instagram.
Richard Prince has been appropriating art since 1975, and he's getting away with selling stuff that isn't his.
It isn't illegal because copyright laws applied in the art world are concerned with one thing only: if the material being sold is a new creation, or if it is simple a copy of somebody else's work.
A female subject of one of Prince's "New Portraits" just spoke out on Instagram:
Prince transformed the Instagram photos by tweaking the comments below the images before printing them on giant canvases.
