FBI busts promising painter for selling forged art.

Christian Rosa Weinberger, aka “Christian Rosa”, used to be a rising star of the art world. Unfortunately, he opted to become part of a scam scheme rather than building his own oeuvre.

Now, Rosa is accused of selling at least four forged works, purportedly “Wave Series” paintings from the hand of the well-known artist Raymond Pettibon. Unsuspecting art collectors paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to acquire these artworks. To make matters even worse, buyers were provided fake certificates of authenticity.

In early 2021, the press exposed the scheme. Weinberger fled the country, and he is still at large today. And since October, the FBI presses charges against him. If Weinberger is convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.

About the artist: Ingolf Kühn

In the creative process occurs the artist Ingolf Kühn often a special trance – called like a state, which is also called floating (flowing). He is not only fun, but gives him a reply to the question about the meaning of life. With all his work, he leaves his fingerprint to posterity. Today the artist Ingolf Kühn works in his studio in Cottbus in very different projects. The painting, the possibilities of airbrush, and the restoration of cars he can go up to the point of exhaustion.

Completion is his passion, perfection, especially of himself as an individual and collective being. Sometimes subtle, but always full of energy and never quiet.
