In a market cluttered with advertisements, it is hard for businesses to stand out from the crowd. The http://artserieshotels.com.au”>Art Series Hotel managed to get the attention of art lovers by daring patrons to http://freshnessmag.com/2011/12/21/art-series-hotel-invites-you-to-steal-its-artwork-by-banksy/”>steal two Banksy paintings from their hotel last year. We thought that it was a one of attempt at clever marketing, but the Australian hotel group has a new challenge for its patrons. This time it involves http://freshnessmag.com/tag/andy-warhol/”>Andy Warhol artworks and http://tonytetro.com/”>Tony Tetro, and they are calling it http://artserieshotels.com.au/whichwarhol”>Which Warhol?. You may or may not have heard of Tetro, but he is often regarded as the greatest living art forger in the world. He is the master counterfeit artist, and was active for over 30 years – replicating works from Chagall, Rembrandt, Dali, Rothko, and even a Ferrari. The competition is very simple. Stay a night at any of their hotels and guess which artwork is the real deal. If you can spot the real Warhol, then you have the chance to take home the painting valued at AUS$20,000. Make sure to book between Tuesday, May 15, 2012, and Friday, August 3, 2012 to be eligible for the competition.
