I have contacted them several times, but they will not respond.They use a number of other artists for other products and I am fairly confident I am not the only stolen work on the site.If this irritates you as much as it does me, please let them know and leave a comment (or multiple comments :) on any of the following.Fusion FacebookFusion InstagramFusion Tumblr**If you leave a comment directly on the product, it will likely never show up, as they must first approve comments.This a form of theft that happens all the time with art. It usually happens on a smaller scale, but this seems like a larger company, reflecting the Urban Outfitters model of stealing artwork. In other words, one small, insignificant artist who will never have a voice to challenge.

Chinese Artist Exhibits Gorgeous ‘Sculptures’ Built By Bees
 The Huffington Post    | By Mallika Rao 
The Beijing-based artist and beekeeper Ren Ri is a focused man. His new three-part series — titled “Yuansu” in reference to the Chinese word for “element” — turns bees into his collaborators. Yuansu II features sculptures made by bees, of beeswax.
In an interview with CoolHunting, Ren explains the “special” properties that make beeswax such an interesting material:
“It’s unstable and can change shape with temperature. The structure of wax cells is orthohexagonal, which is an inconceivable feature in the natural world and it’s a peculiarity of honeybees.”
The sculptures are housed in transparent plastic polyhedrons. At the center of each is the queen bee, positioned thusly so as to enable the worker bees to build around her. They build symmetrically, due to the even planes of the polyhedrons. Every seventh day, Ren changes the gravity of the structure by rotating the box onto a different side. The act is in reference to the biblical concept of creation, but introduces a random element. Ren determines how to shift the box by the roll of a dice. Each time, there’s no telling how the bees will react to their new environment.

“Josef Albers painted over 2000 paintings in his Homage to the Square series between 1950 and 1976, the year he died. What is less known is that the paintings—which took only a few hours each to execute—were preceded by intense color studies in oil, or sometimes gouache, on blotting paper. Unlike the pristine paintings on masonite or board, the sketches are loosely painted. Most are notated in the margins, sometimes even on the paint itself, with the information of their making: the names of paint brands and colors Albers used, and daubs of related hues. Sometimes the sketches are divided, and we see how one set of hues worked in relation to another, or they reveal his attempts to find the perfect gray foil to the hues already selected. Albers chose blotting paper for his sketches so that it would absorb much of the oil, leaving intensely pigmented color on the surface. Fifty of these sketches had been the subject of a splendid exhibition at the Morgan Library, Josef Albers in America.” Read here.
