I am disgusted by the idea that people who copy artworks would be named artists. Would my photocopier be called an artist, or my camera, or my TV? People need to realise that Art is not about reproduction, but about creating. The Art Series Hotels just placed themselves at the absolute bottom of my list of places to see. What fraudsters! To deliberately commission a criminal to produce fake artworks and then use it as a Marketing tool to get their name out there! These things upsets me, clearly. It's immoral and just plainly spoiling the general public's perception of Art. Art is meant to express and interpret. Andy Warhol rules for being original and actually had a think about what he was doing and creating.
As for Tony Tetro; he at least admits himself that he is not an artist but a criminal, in an interview on a breakfast show in Australia some weeks ago. As for all the people out there who thinks that art is about reproduction, please don't. If you don't have ideas, then just leave other people's creations alone, unless you are willing to interpret it and make it your own.
Once again, Marketing is a dirty business.... do people have to act immoral to be able to sell? Please don't ever tell me that you visited an Art Series Hotel!
