Art Thieves - help stop them

August 4th, 2015

Art Thieves - help stop them

I hate art thieves! There is a special place in hell for such lowlifes!

On Facebook I found fellow artist Italia Ruotolo's posting, and she was visibly upset: "Fellows artists look what this assholes stealers are doing ! They are taking our photos from the web selling prints without permission ! Check out the link wallpart.com - Italia Ruotolo

. Lets sign the petition to stop them and shut off the site: Change.org

Go to my original blog entry here: Art Thieves - help stop them and also read the comments, which are a Facebook plug-in. Perhaps comment yourself, check the radio button to allow posting on your Facebook page to spread the word!

Warning about that rip-off site Poster Shop: they are suspected of phishing also, so under no circumstances click on any of their order or contact links!

25 Disturbing Art Pieces That Challenges Peoples Sanity

Unbelievable - to be listed among some of the worlds famous artists - and for the List25 author Petr Habarta to pick my work as the title image! This work is one of my earliest, dating back to 1973 and it is from a phase that I jokingly refer to as my "Scare thy Neighbors" period.
Here is the twitter posting from List25
The image is posted on FAA here: DETERIORATION OF MIND OVER MATTER

Low cost shipping from Canada around the globe

June 30th, 2011

For Shipping from Canada to anywhere on the globe, check out this great company.
Their shipping hub is situated in Surrey, BC
and it is definitely the best low cost choice for all your shipping needs, big or small:

I just recently worked with them, and their rates are less than half of what shipping directly with the major couriers would cost, based on volume discounts they are passing on.

Visionary Art Gallery

VA BANNER
In January 2009, Otto Rapp started a Private Network of Visionary Artists on the Ning Platform with a handful of friends. Since then, the Membership has steadily grown and includes some of the very best Visionary Artists in the Universe. Many of these artists had been friends for decades, others are new to the fold. By August 2009, the Visionary Art Showcase on his own website, featuring selections from the work of the networks artists proved too small, and he created a separate on-line gallery on the weebly platform.

Christian De Boeck, administering the Visionary Art Gallery on Facebook had done an exemplary job of rallying together like-minded artists from around the globe, many of which had been friends for decades.

I am honoured to have been named co-administrator of the gallery, together with Laurence Caruana, Laurie Lipton, Robert Venosa and Oleg Korolev .
