Melissa
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I am a multidisciplinary experimental artist. I have turned my attention to experimental Fractals. A lot of my Art Images are of Fractals and for those who do not know what a Fractal it is an image built with math, a repetition of the same geometric module over and over, Self same similarity if you will, with different dimensions, according to a mathematical function. Fractal geometry is a new way of looking at the world; we have been surrounded by natural patterns, unsuspected but easily recognized in everything and everybody. I use several different programs to blend and manipulate the range of possibilities allowed through my choices. Some may not consider my work Art but I assure you I put as much work, blood sweat and tears if not more into my work. I believe that the quality of the actual work is what is paramount.

Please visit my work and won't you be the judge let me know what you think!

Beware of the Art Thievies

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 18, 2013, 4:11 PM
Just a heads up to all my Art Friends.....seems that there are Thieves among us. Here's is Fractos s Journal entry with some very important informations about the Thieves that are taking out work and claiming it as ther oun. I work hard to get my images something I can be proud to display. But it appears that some people have no pride or shame.Anyawy enough ranting here is here journal entry:

as reprinted from :iconvidom: 's journal

:iconeresaw: found this site, and I was the person that recognized Vidom's work and informed her, and she passed the info along to Vince... everyone should do what they can to spread the word about this thief!

**************************

I've been notified by :iconeresaw: (thanks!) about a website selling some of my artworks without permission.
This german guy owns a 'gallery' (sigh) which clearly contains stolen art from DA artists. Mostly fractal, fantasy and sci-fi artists. Unfortunately he only submits excerpts of the books he prints, so it's impossible to have a list of all artists who fell victim of his robbery without going to his gallery in Germany.

I already found images of some of my favorite DA artists in there, and I am alerting them as soon as I find their works. 
I'm also saving the files he posted for future reference, even if he tried to forbid it by putting passwords on the PDF files.
Furthermore, I've alerted the DA Group :icondoombringers: and I'm sure their work will help.

In my case, he stole dozens and dozens of my artworks without permission, removing my signature and writing his, adding also a fake copyright symbol with an arbitrary year. Of course I have a dozen ways to demonstrate he can't be the author; he also made stupid mistakes which I can't reveal here to not alert him.

In my 5 years of experience on DA this is the second biggest art thievery I saw, after the famous one involving Chad Love Lieberman (you can laugh here if you remember that guy who used the money he made to insure his own nuts)

I NEED HELP from you all! Crying

If you can please spread this and alert other artists, so everyone can check if their works were stolen, I would much appreciate it :-) (Smile)

The website is: www.ma1stnews.de/galerie-maran… and you must navigate it clicking on the tabs below and above the images. Clicking on the images will open PDF files.
For Facebook users: you can also check his page here www.facebook.com/pages/Maran-A…, where dozen of other rip-offs are shown. No need to add that every comment on his FB profile is very welcomed :-) (Smile)

I also found him on Flickr, Twitter, Google+, Youtube and Pinterest.

I am trying to have him removing my works for now, but every artist involved should ask him to do it. I know it won't be enough if he owns a physical gallery in his city; that's why I'm also considering measures to have his gallery visited by some kind of authorities.

I'm not accustomed to use DA as a social network for my personal problems, I just wish to add that my artworks are all I've left with in my life. This is a violation very serious to me and I won't have peace until I see a satisfactory end of this thievery.

Have a nice day everyone! Hug


P.S. My artistic activity is on hold until I'll be able to calm down my nerves.
