•Steve Cook after John Romita
IMAGE DUPLICATOR – Orbital Gallery, Leicester Square, London
16th – 31st May
Whilst many may be familiar with Roy Lichtenstein's work, what they may be unaware of is how closely many of his images were "appropriated" from comic artists like Irv Novick, Russ Heath, Jack Kirby, John Romita and Joe Kubert, who received no fee or credit. Is this Art world snobbery? Artistic licence? Copyright theft? Gallery shortsightedness? or something else?
This show is a chance for artists to ask questions and share their views, via their work by re-reappropriating one of the original comic images Lichtenstein lifted his work from, and reinterpret it again, to create, warp and twist it into something interesting, new and original, to take back the Art!
Money raised from the sale of prints will be donated to the Hero Initiative,
