CALL MY LAWYER Location Los Angeles, USA Profile @chinatownmarket Photography Chinatown Market In case of an emergency, call the number on the can. This might sound like a health and safety warning for aerosol can use, but it is not. It could be, however, a practical instruction for artists to pick up the phone when their rights have been infringed or work used without authorization. ↑ A new take on a American classic. Chinatown Market re-invents the basketball with a new look. → The message is clear, the tides have turned for artists that have their work used for the financial gain of others. 40 Collabo Series Jeff Gluck X Chinatown Market

Big business knows who’s hot in the art world. The artists are seldom included in this financial chain, and theirs is the artwork that functions as the backbone of many campaigns without any remuneration. ↓ Yellow and black, the new CI to remind you when it’s time to call your lawyer. CALL MY LAWYER is a limited edition collabo can that tackles this topic head-on. And actually provides a number for artists to call when they think have been ripped off. The idea was born out of a recent trend by big businesses that use original artworks for their own purposes to generate revenue and drive their sales. All without the consent of the artist or payment for their creative contribution. The Seventh Letter, lawyer Jeff Gluck, China Town Market and Montana Cans have come together to create a can that spreads awareness of the issue and provide a possible solution to this problem for those affected. Gluck, Seventh Letter and China Town Market are all at the coal face of the issue. In cases of copyright infringement or unauthorized use, Jeff Gluck is a New York-based lawyer who specializes in protecting the work and rights of artists. Recent cases with Seventh Letter artists such as Jason REVOK Williams’s work being used by H&M and Cavalli, RIME’s work being used by Jeremy Scott or DASH SNOW’s work being used by Mc Donalds highlights that big business know who’s hot in the art world. Using their ideas and artwork to reach their target demographic without the normal associated costs. Collabo Series Jeff Gluck X Chinatown Market 41
