Paintings by Glenn Brown.
Stephan Balleux clone?
I think it’s the other way around – Glenn Brown was nominated for the Turner prize about 10 years ago.
Wow, how ignorant of me! Thanks!
Not sure. He was pointed and sued for plagiarism for this award.
Interesting article about that right here : http://io9.com/how-a-science-fiction-book-cover-became-a-5-7-million-1497486808
Maybe they just took the same stuff. Clone or not, amen for creation and evolution. ARTISTS UNITE!
Hurrahs a favorite!
I remember finding Glenn Brown on the internet in High School and that first painting was the one that I’ll never forget hah. Man’s style is incredible.
Why would you post him – He’s famous, he doesnt need the exposure –
The third one made me really stop and stare. Excellent!
oh my these are fantastically eerie
UNREAL!!! AMAZING! FANTASTIC! I love them obvio
The first picture reminds me of the end of Evil Dead
I just realized today that the skeleton one is based off of Van Gogh’s skeleton painting with the cigarette. at least it was in a van gogh book…are the others like that as well?
i feel horrible a little bit when i see these paintings.
but paint skill of these paintings very nice! i like these paintings!!

The skeleton painting looks like Van Gogh’s ‘Skull with Cigarette’.
These are seriously ‘awesome’ works of art! Truly remarkable!
These are absoloutely magnificently Done. The off colors make the mysteriousness double As attractive.
These are very haunting.
Glenn Brown is a thieving bastard, who steals other peoples artwork, changes a few colours, and then sells it for large sums of cash, to gullible fuckwits! He is a scumbag, and everyone in the real-world knows it! Do NOT buy Glenn Brown paiintings. Do NOT support this artist. Do NOT post his work in any gallery, museum, or other venue, and allow people to pay to see his (so-called) work! Don’t believe me? Just read this, for proof!
wow didn’t realise there was a history here – thats so strange, thanks for the link
Yeah, Jon. Boldly spoken. Let’s kill Andy Warhol too…unless the D in your name stands for Dillinger. In that case I withdraw my comment. It would, however, fully explain yours…
Oh stop acting like your shoe-size, and start acting a little more like
your alleged IQ. That way, i might decide to start taking your comment
as one coming from somone with a developed brain! FYI, Andy Warhol’s
dead, so your childish comment is valueless. He didn’t plagiarise
people’s work, he actually modified existing images, as a comment on
consumerist society. Glenn Brown clearly and blatantly does plagiarise
other people’s work. If you’re too stupid to see that, then there really
is no hope for you!
jon d there is no art without borrowing from the past, taking what someone has done and making it your own is/ or putting your flair on it is what many teachers suggest to there students now of days. Glen found his niche in tweaking others works into striking images of his own delight. deal with it.
