Artist Says Kendrick Lamar & SZA Stole Their Work For “All The Stars” Video
Last week, Kendrick Lamar and SZA released the visuals for their “All the Stars” collaboration off the Black Panther soundtrack. Now visual artist Lina Iris Viktor is calling out Kendrick and SZA for stealing the gold pattern designs found in the area from her “Constellation I” series.
Viktor’s representatives state that Marvel Studios reached out to her back in November of 2016 and last December about using her artwork, where she respectfully declined. Now Viktor is looking for a licence fee and a public apology claiming that Black Panther is centered around Africa but they area stealing from African artists.
Look at the comparison below. In other Kendrick news, he’s going to ban fans from taking photos and video at his concerts.
