A Man Who Organized Fake Justin Bieber Art Exhibition Was Sued by the Singer

A Man Who Organized Fake Justin Bieber Art Exhibition Was Sued by the Singer

We all remember the fake news about an exhibition with Justin Bieber’s erotic artworks that appeared in September. And now the man who is responsible for it is known.

Brian Whiteley was revealed by Arnet and is now sued by the singer. The artist who found the Satellite Art Show got a letter with accusations concerning direct violation of Justin’s intellectual property rights. However, the man’s lawyer responded that the work is satirizing the artistic community. And Brian himself says that this was a reaction to overpriced artworks painted by celebrities. He also added that he is deeply sorry that Bieber hadn’t got the funny parody.

Whitley came up with such an idea after seeing huge price tags on works created by celebrities or well-known people. As an artist who’s been trying to break through, he is saddened that celebrities can easily turn into artists and make a lot of money.

Paintings from Space had to feature the singer’s paintings that provoke intimacy and childhood dreams with layers of eroticism and joy. In the fake press release, Whitley even dyed his hair and wore fake tattoos to look like Bieber. Interestingly, after the performer’s lawyers contacted him, the project was renamed Justin Bieber Is Suing Me.
