Artist Calls Out Aaron Carter For Using His Artwork To Promote Merch, And His Response Is Even Worse Than The Theft

You have no right to take his or anyone’s art without asking!

A few days ago, Singer Aaron Carter unveiled a new promotion for his Merch, and to gain people’s attention, he decided to use the artwork of two lions with their heads against each other named ‘Brotherhood.’

Nevertheless, the creator of the artwork, identified as Jonas Jodicke, 25, based in Berlin knows nothing about the Merch.

On noticing his artwork being used without permission, Jodicke made a public announcement. The professional artist emphasized it wasn’t a collaboration neither it’s a commission. Besides, the work wasn’t even credited but was an image stolen to sell merchandise and profit.

‘I learned of Aaron’s using my artwork from a follower on Twitter. I was reached out via direct message telling me about Aaron’s tweet in which he shared my artwork to promote his Merch. He didn’t even credit me as the original owner and didn’t ask for permission beforehand. That’s why I called him out in a tweet, in a polite manner to inform him I wasn’t comfortable with him using my art.’ Jodicke told Forbes.

‘His reply to my tweet was what started the tweetstorm going. Instead of apologizing politely or reaching out to me to settle things, he insulted me and said I should be glad he’s using my art to promote his store.’ Jodicke added.

Jodicke continued: ‘The Brotherhood piece was actually the art that got my career as a freelance artist as it went viral on Instagram and all over the internet. Officially, I do work with a few companies that sell products using my art rightfully, but some sellers, most especially from China are clearly making high figures off my work, illegally.’
