Olivier Ciappa Uses the Image of The Marianne for his Own Political Agenda and Public Recognition
Olivier Ciappa has been sued for infringing rights of worldwide known visual artist David Kawena for attributing the design of the Marianne to himself and attaching FEMEN leader Inna Shevchenco as his inspiration source. Additionally, Ciappa has used the signature of French celebrities Carla Bruni, Gérard Depardieu, and Anouk Aimée, as well as none other than former French President, Mr. Nicolas Sarkozy (!) in order to support his own political agenda without their consent! ('Le Figrao')
Mr. Ciappa has knowingly infringed Mr. Kawena's copyrighted works and his moral right (Droit Moral), by identifying himself as the "Artist, creator of the new Marianne stamp" (Artiste, créateur du nouveau timbre Marianne) in an article published in the LeMonde web site on 19.7.2013 as well as in many other instances and media outlets. In that specific infringing publication, Mr. Ciappa used Mr. Kawena's works of art without his authorization and deliberately signed his own name as the author of Mr. Kawena's works of art (circled in red):
As if that was not enough Mr. Ciappa wrote a fictionalised article describing how he drew the Marianne himself. In the article published on 'The Huffington Post' on 15/07/2013 Ciappa describes his working process: “Initially, I wanted to draw a face with mixing traits (of) Roselyne Bachelot and Christiane Taubira. But my sketches did not work. I then noticed that they both had a very gracious gesture of the hand, when spoke at length monologue. I kept that in my Marianne gesture. Then I wanted to give her (Marianne) the characteristics of a person who is both a native of North Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia, to offer Marianne a dimension beyond this border. But as you can imagine, the result on my drawing board was ridiculous.”

Comment, Like, Share - do whatever you can to help me re-claim the rights for my work which has been stolen and abused by one guy for over a year now.
I thank you all for your support,
The video above is just one of numerous recorded appearances made byOlivier Ciappa where he claims to be the ‘artist’ who drew the Marianne and based her on Inna Shevchenko of Femen!
I would like to quote from the press release issued by my lawyers to clear things up on the matter once and for all -
“Mr. Kawena wishes to clarify and illuminate a number of events which has come to light regarding the Marianne:
1). Mr. Kawena and he alone created the Marianne.
2). Despite claims of Mr. Ciappa to be an ‘Artist’ or a “dessinateur”, in his own words – he does not possess drawing skills of any kind.
3). Consequentially, Mr. Kawena, and he alone, can speak to the nature of his influences and inspirations in creating the character of Marianne.
4). Mr. Kawena vehemently denies any connection between image depicted on The ‘Marianne’ Stamp and the Ukrainian FEMEN activist, Inna Shevchenko, and any other personalities, dead or alive, whose names were linked to the Marianne by Mr. Ciappa.”
