Michelle Obama: une fresque sème la discorde


L'artiste Chris Devins voulait rendre hommage à Michelle Obama en créant une fresque sur le mur d'un édifice de Chicago. Pourquoi cette oeuvre est-elle controversée? Pour des motifs politiques ou pour la représentation de l'ancienne First lady? Non, il s'agit bêtement d'un cas de plagiat.

 "Devins said he got the idea for the mural from an image he found on Pinterest that depicted the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. He said he didn't know where it had originated.

Devins, who calls himself an urban planner as well as an artist, is known for painting large outdoor murals and installations around Chicago. He said he chose the mural's location -- across the street from an elementary school Michelle Obama once attended on the city's South Side -- because "I wanted a mural that would serve as an inspiration for the young ladies on Chicago's South Side and young ladies everywhere."
