EDITOR’S COMMENT:  Ripoff Report strongly believes in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential frauds, scams, rip-offs or the like by shady individuals or businesses.  Ripoff Report is by consumers, for consumers…and we want to keep it that way!  Unfortunately this Report was posted and, upon additional information, appears to have been primarily for the purpose of bullying or harassment.  In many instances Ripoff Report will reach out to the author of the Report to obtain further information.  In other instances, enough information is provided to Ripoff Report to warrant redactions without reaching out to the author.  Ripoff Report is working to combat tactics that are perceived to be cyberharassment, cyberstalking, cyberbullying and/or what is generally considered a “revenge post” as we do not condone such behavior. 

The Report was brought to our attention and, upon review of compiled information (which will be done on a case by case basis without any obligation as resources allow), and at Ripoff Report’s sole discretion, information that did not conform to current policies and/or the identifying information relating to the individual(s) and/or business(es) named in this “Report” and any subsequent comments thereto have been editorially redacted as indicated by the following “(((REDACTED)))” or (((REDACTED DUE TO PERCEIVED HARASSMENT / REVENGE POST)))”.

CONSUMERS:  Be kind.  Keep it honest.  Keep it fair.  Stick to the facts.  Do your research.  Keep the dirty laundry in the laundry hamper…not on Ripoff Report.

PLEASED TO SEE SUCH EFFORTS?  YOU CAN HELP RIPOFF REPORT COMBAT THOSE WHO ABUSE THE SYSTEM:  Ripoff Report, as resources allow, is working towards combatting Cyberharassment, Cyberstalking, Cyberbullying and/or other problems such as what is generically called “revenge posts” that can be riddled with nasty personal allegations that can be serious.   Ripoff Report would love to be able to timely address each and every review request we receive, however, this takes resources.  If you think this is a worth-while endeavor, we encourage you to make a donation so that we can expand the resources that we can devote to this project.  You can make a non-tax deductible donation by clicking on the PayPal icon at the bottom of the page located at the following URL:  http://www.ripoffreport.com/ConsumersSayThankYou/Donate.aspxThe more resources we have, the more resources we can devote to this project and other forward thinking and positive initiatives like it.

Thank you!

My childhood friend and college sweetheart (((REDACTED))) stole the majority of my artwork and sketches when I decided to marry another man. That was about 15 years ago!!! I think he was jealous of my creativity and wanted to paint and draw and channel expressiveness but he was not an artist so he could not have my visions. He now runs the online art gallery (((REDACTED))) where he sells my original artwork as his own.

He also sells my artwork and many exact replicas of my paintings for thousands of dollars to art collectors in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area by telling people he is the artist of my body of work. A review of MatthewOlyphant.com, (((REDACTED))) Marketplace and Facebook .com Pages (((REDACTED))), all show my work that I made over many years and lost when I moved out the apartment we shared as a couple. I asked for my artwork many times but he would not return it and he was so unstable that I gave up and thought he would give it to me after he stopped feeling sad about the break up.

Recently I moved back to San Francisco after living in the East for many years to discover he was making a living off my work on (((REDACTED))). I found he listed prices on some other marketplaces and was angery when I saw the prices he marked and was making off work he did not create.. My designs and original paintings and drawings had been repainted and drawn many time and people did not question him because he uses his brothers famous name and face to sell his work. I made sure to contact hm and let him know I had proof the work was mine and he dared me to prove it.

I am prepaaring to file a lawsuit against this con-Artist nd I want people to be aware they are buying stolen paintings that are signed by a person who did ot make them. All of my work is on the website gallery but  no mention of my name or credit is there for being the owner and artist of the work. Support local artist BUT AVOID (((REDACTED))) and pleaase do not buy work that belongs to another person who is pompous enough to think he can fool the public.

He also has stolen work from other female artist and a few male artists. We are all wrking together to put an end to this art crooks career so we can get what it ours. We plan to file lawsuit so I am also asking anybody who is his victim to come forward and help us take (((REDACTED))) down along with all of the markets he uses to rob people with forged and stolen paintings.

Work this out offline

Geez, why would write a report about your ex online? You said you almost married this guy, (((REDACTED))). I have no idea what Vera is talking about but maybe she's the current girlfriend but she sounds mad. I think this should be discussed offline instead of airing laundry for all to see. Kelly, if you thik about it he might have painted some paintings that resembled your work because you lived together and i spired each other. That seems like aomething an artist would do. I have friends wno paint in similar styles because they share ideas and lives. Try to look at it as a compliment and not that he stole from you. About the other stuff you say about him, the fact is you lived with him and choae him so don't blame him. Work this out because the world has room for many artists. Good luck in working this out becaue there seems like a lot of bad anger is present and that is not good for an artist.

Liar. Where is your paintings?

AUTHOR: Vera - (United States of America)

POSTED: Monday, September 10, 2012

I just don't get how it is that (((REDACTED))) supposedly stole your paintings, yet he still has new paintings often and hasn't been in contact with you for like forever. 

You also can not show us any of the paintings you have supposedly made, neither of the exhibitions you attended with your artwork.  Not a single photo with proof from you.

These are all lies made up by someone who got obsessed with (((REDACTED))) brother (((REDACTED))) and wanted to get to him through (((REDACTED))).  It is easy to get a crush on a celebrity or a movie star and some people get so obsessed they lose touch with reality, which requires medication to help them restabilise
