2011- news related to NeoPopRealism.


Scam(!): Con artists, who are dilettantes in visual arts, from RI and MA had created a new term to rename and sell Nadia Russ' artistic invention - NeoPopRealism, a unique artistic technique and style she created in 1989 and announced internationally January 4, 2003, when she created a term NeoPopRealism.
In 2004, crooks also recklessly created a trademark "red square" for the paper they sell in their teaching kits. They were playful, thought of the Moscow's “Red Square”- Nadia Russ came to the US from Moscow. They thought Nadia will never find out about their theft.
There is a motto in scammers’ website: "Artists for Respect" which suggests visitors an idea that they are striving for respect and working to improve the society. They went internationally preparing "certified teachers", publishing little books, making seminars... Their web site says no word about the real Inventor of the art style Nadia Russ they promote and sell to grannies and children worldwide.
Actually, no serious person/artist should learn from them because from the art professional point of view, there is no artistic qualities' presence in their designs/ books. It is a craftsmen’s corner, where the craftsmen-copycats make their ridiculous statement that they are inventors of art form, to impress the grannies and children...
There's the dark story behind all that.
First presentation of a renamed and simplified NeoPopReaism invention was made by swindlers in RI. But NeoPopRealism first appeared in RI much earlier, in 2002, when Nadia Russ passed to David T. Shwaery eleven her ink pen pattern drawings to exhibit them. He didn't exhibit them, he had another plans for this art style, more personal…… Then, in 2002, Nadia Russ also left to David T. Shwaery (President of Pawtucket Arts Council in RI) a series of her original canvases to exhibit them in RI. Two weeks later, Clifford Cone, D.T. Shwaery's partner, said that her canvases "were demolished accidentally by contractors who came to repair their property“. It was not true. Multi-millionaire, David Thomas Shwaery could easily afford Nadia Russ' artworks, but it was not in his plans...
Many months later, under people’s pressure, Shwaery and Cone returned Nadia Russ her artworks.
The following years, Nadia Russ, her humanistic projects and the idea of NeoPopRealism were constantly attacked online for seemed no reason. She was bombed by tremendous number of the anonymous spayware/malware infected emails daily. Not only attacked, all her ideas and projects were copied, step-by-step, by these copycats since 2003 till present.
Nadia Russ created a word NeoPopRealism and announced her invention worldwide in January, 2003.
In 2004, copycats created a new term to rename NeoPopRealism. And NeoPopRealism ink pen pattern drawing style under another name (and with low artistic qualities) was presented to the public in RI with Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas as "inventors". Copycats are not artists, they are just "inventors", even they cannot execute any decent ink drawings, they draw very simple backgrounds/ designs which Nadia Russ has used as the backdrop in her ink pen pattern drawings.
Parade began:
David Thomas Shwaery was bombing Nadia Russ with the anonymous, spyware-infected emails, asking for brainstorms: copycats could not move forward without Nadia Russ and her way of innovative thinking…
But to prosper, the dulls had to ruin the top art origin - NeoPopRealism and all Nadia Russ’ activities. They were trying to replace it with their childish, craftsmen's substitute. For many years, Nadia Russ lived like in a war zone.
David Thomas Shwaery repeatedly told Nadia Russ: “You will go nowhere.” She couldn't understand what he meant.
Nadia Russ didn’t know anything about this crooked project that was running behind her back until June 2011. But June 4 of 2011 was a mystery-solving. She found out about the craftsmen-copycats through a little booklet, published by craftsmen's publishing company. This booklet was teaching the basics of the NeoPopRealism ink pen pattern drawing and was telling that this style was invented by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.
NeoPopRealism Journal's ( team sent emails to the fake inventors, to craftsmen's publishing company Design Originals, and to 'zentangle certified(!) teachers' (some of them are authors of teaching booklets that they sell through Amazon - Sandy Steen Bartolomew, Marie Browning, Suzanne McNeill) informing them that what they do is wrong and misappropriating. However, they continued to do the same.
Crooked minds are dangerous. They steal and lie looking into your eyes with innocent face expression... Stop them today because they are constantly in search for the new victims. And tomorrow it could be you.
Would any decent adults want to learn from the thieves, who doesn't know how to draw, but only perform primitive doodling that has nothing in common with art? Would any parent want his child was learning from a "certified" by crooks "teacher", who doesn't understand the core of visual arts? If yes, then society is in a big danger of stupidity.

Follow the NeoPopRealism canons for happier life and let’s get together and will make this world a better place.
NeoPopRealism 10 canons were created by artist Nadia Russ in 2004 (see on the top of page).
