Some of my recent drawings or projects
Right now you can purchase someone's Instagram photo for around $100,000. The money won't go to the photographer, however, it will go to "artist" Richard Prince, who has blown up and made prints of other people's Instagram photos for his series titled "New Portraits." The previously privateshow at the Gagosian has been a part of Frieze.
According to Petapixel, "Prince is notorious in the art world for taking other people’s work, 'appropriating' them as his own with various changes, and then selling them for large amounts of dough." And no, he did not get permission for these prints, which are screenshots of the images with one addition from Prince, "a short message [he] posted as the last comment on each one."
