publish date: 2018-02-12
As the soundtrack to the film Black Panther continues to garner praise, one artist has taken aim at album curator Kendrick Lamar over the alleged theft of her artwork in the music video to K-Dot and SZA's 'All The Stars.'
The New York Times reports that over the weekend, a lawyer for British-Liberian artist Lina Iris Viktor fired off a letter to Anthony 'Top Dawg' Tiffith claiming a copyright violation of the artwork featured in Viktor's “Constellations” collection.
The paintings in 'Constellations' feature 24-karat gold patterned artworks, similar to that used in the 'All The Stars' visual, which was directed by Dave Meyers and the little homies (aka Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free).
