I'm really frustrated that Etsy doesn't respond to reports as well as Ebay does. I feel like if nothing is done these art theft incidents will just snowball. I have reported this person twice now over a year and nothing is done. There are many of these people on Etsy and it really makes the place feel like a fleamarket or something instead of an artist haven.
I just need your help in identifying the artist of this Boddhisattva painting probably depicting Quan Yin that the thief has mislabelled the "Goddess" Vishnu
If you see anything else in the 3,000+ items she is selling besides the Hollywood ripoffs maybe you could put a link here to the artist or notify them. I see a lot of stuff I recognize from having browsed artists before (especially pagan artists) I don't know how to fight this.
I have already put this on The Kitchen as well btw.
That piece looks like it could be public domain. I'm guessing that's what this vendor does. All the rest look like the copyrights vanished into the ether. It's pretty obvious he's not taking credit, but he's not giving credit either. I'm betting he got it from an image bank.
No it's not clear. This is a very distinct contemporary realist piece, it has none of the hallmarks of East Asian art older than 20 years. Copyrights don't "vanish into the ether" either the artist gives permission or they do not. The only think that would make it ""look like it could be public domain" is if there was a statement from the artist saying it was!That piece looks like it could be public domain.

Edwards Scissorhands and American Mcgee's Alice are not public domain, both of which are featured in her "crafts". These items are basically base metal crap you buy bulk and glue shit to - nothing people would ever buy without the art theft component. I live near one of the biggest craft suppliers in the country and they have aisles and aisles of ready-made jewelry and accessories you can mod with your applique. You can't sell a .50 pillbox for 900% markup without glueing good art to it.
Thank you so much Iridyse. I will write him.
