Iani Papadopol Stole Video Game Images, Printed Them Off & make easy money

So an “artist” by the name of Iani Papadopol recently held an exhibition in Romania called “UpDate 3D Loading”. It was a local hit because the “paintings” he showed off were, for a guy nobody had ever heard of, amazing.

Turns out there was a reason for that. He’d stolen them.

The images turned out to be video game concept art from some of the biggest and best names in the field, including Daniel Dociu, Craig Mullins, Mathias Verhasselt and Sparth (click those links to be taken to galleries featuring their awesome work).

Papadopol simply took some of their existing images, as well as those from other artists, printed them off on canvas and held the exhibition. Worse, the exhibition was held with the intent of selling the pieces.

It’s a double-whammy of a crime; not only is he stealing work from respected artists, but much of that work is also the property of major publishers, making it even more serious than a mere act of artistic plagiarism.

He was quickly caught by alert online fans, not to mention some of the artists themselves – who were understandably a little surprised/concerned – but not before local art critics could hail “his” work as “giving shape to three-dimensional art”.

To those local critics, you should really check out more video game concept art. There’s a reason he stole it. It’s often incredible.

UPDATEHere’s a blog created in 2009 containing “conceptual art by iani papadopol”. It actually contains conceptual art by other artists, such as the above-mentioned Craig Mullins and Daniel Dociu. via KOTAKU

    One thing I would like to say is before purchasing more computer system memory, look into the machine in to which it is installed.
    In the event the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory limit is 3.

    25GB. Adding over this would just constitute a waste. Make sure one’s mother board can handle this upgrade volume, as well. Good blog post.

  2. Very energetic article, I liked that a lot. Will there be a part

    Howdy, I do think your web site might be having internet browser
    compatibility problems. When I take a look at your site
    in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, wonderful blog!

    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the

    Can I just say what a comfort to find a person that actually knows what they are talking about on the
    web. You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More people have to read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
