Romanian Artist Plagiarizes Popular Video Game Illustrators

Why would anyone put on a televised art exhibit knowing full well it is full of artwork stolen from other artists?

The fraud was discovered by online fans and local artists after the exhibit was broadcast on TV. Papadopol's works were found to be stunningly similar -- in fact, identical -- to those of famous video game illustrators. Papadopol attempted to sell the prints before he was caught. There's no word yet whether charges will be filed.
