Transcript of Artists Steal

Artists are often inspired by other works of art
"an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect"
Appropriation in art is the use of pre-existing objects or images with little or no transformation applied to them
"The relationship between texts (including art); the way that similar or related texts influence, reflect, or differ from each other
The practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own (like when I copy & pasted that sentence!)
How do you "steal?"
Find an artist whose work you find interesting. "Steal" something from that artist-- something about their style, subject matter, a specific artwork, etc.

How do you "steal?"
Start with an idea you saw somewhere else, but don't just duplicate it! Mash-up your own interests & ideas with the stolen idea.
