What would you do if you could perfectly replicate any famous piece of art? Mark Landis has made a reputation for himself as America’s best art forger, replicating works from Picasso to Walt Disney in mind-boggling similarities. The disparity between his forgeries and the actual art pieces are near non-existent as numerous museums have already displayed his works to the public. Instead of incurring monetary compensation for his works, Landis freely donates the forged pieces, reveling in his success at duping high museum officials rather than collecting a fee. Check out the above clip on his creative process with the full story here and be wary of the next museum you visit; it could be a Mark Landis masterpiece.
