The New York Post: Wall Street’s ‘Bull’ sculptor threatens to sue over ‘Girl’ statue

Artist Arturo di Modica says the placement of the “Fearless Girl” statue against his “Charging Bull” on Wall Street initially made him “sick” and wounded his pride — but now he wants revenge.

The frail Di Modica, 76, was surrounded by a half a dozen lawyers Wednesday at a press conference where it was announced the artist is seeking to sue State Street Global Advisors, the mutual fund company that placed “Fearless Girl” in opposition to his work, for trademark and copyright infringement.

“I’m not a ‘poor Arturo,’ ” Di Modica said, in reference to a Post story in which artist Kristen Visbal, commissioned to create the bronze of a sassy girl staring down the bull, admitted feeling sorry his iconic work was now a source of mockery.
