Funism by Sal Marino - Origins

                I suppose the start of all this nonsense was when I (Sal Marino) began doing these doodles in high school, about a hundred and eighty-seven years ago and continued throughout my life as ephemeral imagery. My early art pandering took me through photographic exploits and aspirations as an assistant for Ralph Gibson, a well known contemporary photographer with ties to Dorethea Lange and Robert Frank. As such I became a fly on the wall of the New Your City art-scene elite, rubbing…See More

Funism Tragedy - When Creative Efforts Are Stolen

Funism Tragedy-Some of you will remember me (Sal Marino) from many years ago when I began promoting The Funism Art Movement c2001-2002, claiming copyright to the “The Funism Art Movement”, “Funism Art”, “Funist” , etc… Although imitation is said to be the greatest form of flattery, I feel it necessary to point out something that has been happening on the net and elsewhere.In a seemingly devious attempt to take the wind out of my sails and divert attention to himself, an artist [?] by the name…See More

Funism Tragedy-

Some of you will remember me (Sal Marino) from many years ago when I began promoting The Funism Art Movement c2001-2002, claiming copyright to the “The Funism Art Movement”, “Funism Art”, “Funist” , etc… Although imitation is said to be the greatest form of flattery, I feel it necessary to point out something that has been happening on the net and elsewhere.
In a seemingly devious attempt to take the wind out of my sails and divert attention to himself, an artist [?] by the name of Norm Magnusson has been blogging around the net that he started the movement in 1991. What I had discovered through my research was that there seems to be an obscure article by an unknown writer referencing a “fun-ism style” somewhere around that date. However, there doesn’t seem to be any supporting documentation that the article was actually published in 91. I also discovered that Magnusson is a member of a site called “The Art of the Prank” which undoubtedly is the basis of his motivations regarding his posts and likely his art. {Magnusson’s membership on the ‘Art of the Prank’ site shamelessly boasts, “Art Pranks, Culture Jamming and Reality Hacking” as if it were a badge!}Curiously, Magnusson had not attached himself, nor his work to the Funism Art Movement identity whatsoever, nor did he promote himself as such until somewhere around 2007 when he launced his website on the net. By 2007 the movement was well established and enjoyed some publicity as such and it is no wonder that some artists would want to attach themselves to it and piggy-back whatever publicity the movement generated.
Naturally I challenged Magnusson to provide documentation to his spurious claims, but he failed to respond, instead digging in his heals and expanding his lies. I suspect that through his prankster “MO’ some other self-authored posts have appeared in blogs and elsewhere [curiously post 2007] attempting to bolster his deceptions. While I understand an artist’s attempt to garner some publicity, it is an outright theft of intellectual property to claim the creation of another as your own. Magnusson would be better served attempting to create something original if he can and stop stealing and detracting from others. In my opinion Magnusson is nothing more than a thief, prankster and uninspired artist. It is also interesting to note that much of the data found on Magnusson are his self-authored posts of recent vintage, all after I began promoting The Funism Art Movement c2001 and only after I invited artists to join in. It stands to reason that if Magnusson’s pompous claims had any validity, there would be numerous third party articles, exhibit reviews, inclusion in collections and other documentation with time and date verification, all identifyng the movement and his connection to it. Instead, Magnusson has fabricated spurious claims with no substantiation. One does not have to be an accomplished forensic detective to see through Magnusson’s ruse.
