The World of Art Forgery with Mark Landis

Thursday Jan 10 2013

Mark Landis is an American Painter, and human philanthropist who has been selling museums his pieces of forged art for three decades now. The 58 year-old painter has donated over one hundred of his forged art pieces to smaller museums in over 20 states across the United States as gifts out of kindness, not taking any sum of payment, making his hobby perfectly legal. Landis prefers 19th century art pieces as the main subjects of his forging, being that he's been practicing on these kinds of works since his early childhood. Above is the video pertaining Mark Landis' craft, as a part of THE AVANT/GARDE DIARIES series!
