Louis Carr ~
The Riff: How to Steal like an Artist
How do we respectfully pay homage to our influences while making a work look and feel uniquely our own?
In this lecture, Louis will walk you through ways to riff off your influences and how to avoid your work looking like a mediocre copy of another’s masterpiece. Louis will guide you on a tour of artists new and old who have riffed off of another and give his opinions of where it is successful and where it has fallen short.
