Apologies for a non-art post on my website, but I find this absolutely repulsive.
A Vietnam-based ‘company’, “Vintage Boy”, has stolen my artwork and used them as designs for their apparel without my permission. The Lana Del Rey vector designs (1,2) are both my own personal pieces, and the Lady Gaga sweaters are also both by me (1)— the second Lady Gaga one taking bits of pieces of my work and combining it with other elements.
I am absolutely sure that I’m not the only artist they have stolen from— if you take a look at their galleries, most of the art on there are popular artwork seen on Tumblr. If you’re an artist and your work has been stolen, please post on their wall and ask them to remove as well.
Here is a link to their Facebook page.
Please reblog and share this.
