Ok, so he’s not my most attractive subject. But he is perhaps my most deserving.
I learned yesterday that someone on ebay is selling my work and claiming it as his own. Since many of you share/buy art online, I wanted to post the details. Please forward the links below to anyone who would find them useful.
Cai Jiang Xun is selling nude male art in the MJART Gallery Store on ebay, including my paintings “On Display, Starring Michael Breyette” and “Size Matters, Starring Jack Mackenroth.” Since both paintings are still in my possession, I can only assume that he is printing low-res images on canvas and “enhancing” them. Upon further investigation, I learned that he has at least twenty one other pieces from my collection that he is touting as his own and offering with “wholesale opportunities.”
I included all the details to date on my blog. The first post includes images of the listings and details about the seller. The second post contains the e-mail correspondence he sent me today sharing the sources of his “inspiration” and proclaiming their popularity with his customers.
