Chuck Close Filter by Scott Blake
Chuck Close does not want his art to be trivialized. He will exercise his legal rights, even if your motives are good. If he knows about your project and does nothing, that will put him in a position where he cannot fight the next, even more egregious usage of his copyrighted images and use of his name.
"it may be an amusing project and many people might like it, but it is MY art that is trivialized, MY career you are jeopardizing, MY legacy, which i have to think about for my children, and MY livelihood. i must fight to protect it."
Chuck Close, November 2010

THIS PAGE NOW SERVES AS A WARNING TO OTHERS.

1. Do not scan, import, or photograph any of Chuck Close's original images from books, websites, or museums to be used in your own projects.

2. Do not appropriate, reference, or digitally convert any of Chuck Close's original images.

3. Do not create a computer program, Photoshop action, or online filter that builds mosaics out of dissected Chuck Close images.

4. Do not use Chuck Close's name in the title of your project.

Sincerely,
Scott Blake
