Fakes, thieves, handlers and an anime about them all

You must have heard of the two BenCab works "lost" in transit by now. Last Wednesday, CANVAS linked to this somewhat related piece by Ulrich Boser on art theft, Art Fag City interviewed the founder of the Art Handling Olympics, a former workmate said that she once reproduced 10 works by the Impressionists for a house in Forbes, and I was in a shoot where I found out that my photographer, makeup artist and art director all used to paint.

The day before that, my brother recommended the anime series Gallery Fake, based on a Japanese manga. This is not what you expect your art education to come from, but it's an entertaining source nonetheless. Watch it here.
