Shepard Fairey the Plagiarist

Shepard Fairey’s Nouveau

Kolomon Moser’s Ver Sacrum

Pablo Picasso had once said that, Good artists copy. Great artists steal. But based on what I’m seeing right now… uhmm I dunno.

Shepard Fairey’s good. He has a unique style, creative mind but i think it’s not fair using other’s works without giving credits to them. I wonder how much did Shepard Fairey earned already with those rip-offs.

I’ll let you be the judge.
