James Bacon covers a rare kind of art exhibit in a new post for Forbidden Planet.
Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein currently has a show on at the Tate Modern —
While the public is intimately familiar with his work, what they may be unaware of is that many of his images were directly “appropriated” from comic artists like Irv Novick, Russ Heath, Jack Kirby, John Romita and Joe Kubert, who received no fee or credit.
Says James, “It is therefore incredibly exciting to hear, that Rian Hughes (‘Yesterday’s Tomorrows’, ‘Cult-Ure’, and ‘Lifestyle Illustration of the 60s’) has initiated an art show entitled ‘Image Duplicator’ to be held at Orbital Comics on Neal St, Leicester Square, London, from May 16th to the 31st, coinciding with the end of the Tate’s Lichtenstein show.”
