There is nothing wrong in getting inspired from any original work in any creative field. Its a form of flattery. But, doing a blatant copy and hoping not to get caught is both unethical and foolish in these times when the world is getting smaller day by day. There is no dearth of such copy cats in the field of advertising. Here are 20 print ads with creative original ideas which were copied later.

Chinese photographic artist Li Wei creates images of himself and his friends being thrown off buildings, dangling from bridges and hanging off cars, all in the name of art.

Li’s photos can take up to six months to set up and involve huge crews organizing props such as smoke, mirrors, wires and cranes. After the photographs are taken the father of one removes traces of the wires with a computer.

Li, from Beijing, said: “One of the most difficult and expensive shots was where myself and 12 people were flying behind a car and we had to use a lot of cranes to keep us all suspended”

“My favourite photograph features my daughter holding some helium balloons and I am standing on them in mid air. It was lovely working with my daughter and the photo represents my feelings,” he said

The 40 year old has been producing works since 1999 and has made tens of thousands of pounds from his photographs. He said: “I like to achieve the impossible. I have hurtled to the earth like a meteorite and flown through the air. My pictures show the unstable, there’s a lot of danger and I love to create that feeling in my work”

“Some of the images can be really complex and take up to six months to put together whereas some are very simple and can be planned in a sketch and shot immediately”

“The images can involve me getting battered around a bit – most times I will pick up an injury from the stunt wires, one time I got my head stuck in a pane of smashed glass”

“It can be dangerous, but I like to ride that line, to me it’s worth it to defy gravity or fly through the air,” he said

“I am fascinated by the unstable and dangerous sides of art and I hope my works reflect these aspects,” he says

“Sometimes I am in real danger – I have to hang myself high with steel wires and people do get a little worried for me – but I am fine”

We can’t help wondering whether it might not be easier – and safer – to use Photoshop
