"Charging Bull" artist says "Fearless Girl" violated his rights

Quote:
"Charging Bull" is ready to rumble with "Fearless Girl."

The sculptor who created the iconic "Charging Bull" statue in New York City's financial district Wednesday said an investment company violated his rights by installing the newly popular “Fearless Girl” statue near his artistic creation without permission for what amounts to a commercial advertising campaign.

Speaking at a Manhattan news conference, Arturo Di Modica said he installed the bull in front of the New York Stock Exchange in 1987 as a symbol of America’s resilience following the stock market crash that year. The city later relocated the sculpture to a small public park nearby.

Interesting. I actually agree with this artist. Did not know the story behind the "Charging Bull" but now realize that it was created to show American strength. The "Fearless Girl" changes the dynamic and makes the bull into a "Bully" that she is standing up to.

Great marketing campaign by the company behind "Fearless Girl" but they took a positive symbol of American pride and turned it into profitable marketing campaign for their company to the detriment of the original creation.
