Using Law to Outsmart Chuck Close
Artist Scott Blake writes about is art project and his legal run-in with Chuck Close.
I never intended to rip off Chuck Close, so when he emailed me in November 2010 threatening legal action, I did exactly what he said and took my filter offline immediately. Still, I feel obligated to point out that Close is the 14th richest living artist, worth a staggering $25 million. I really don’t think any work I make is going to “jeopardize” his career or his livelihood.
Check out how Blake intends to get back at Close. Very creative and inspiring.
