Ole Ahlberg (born 1949) is a Danish painter with a growing international audience. His painting has undergone a distinct development during the last few years. And his road to fame has involved using Hergé’s famous comic book characters such as Tintin and Haddock in a new artistic context. Tintin meets Ole Ahlberg’s femmes fatales! Erotic? You bet!

The Danish artist, Ole Ahlberg, was sued by Moulinsart (Tintin’s copyright holders), for using images of Tintin and the Thompson Twins in his art. They lost. This dates back to 2001, when the artist was opening a show of his art in Brussels with the wife of the Danish prime minister when Moulinsart’s lawyers demanded the offending images be removed. Ahlberg refused and the case went to court where the Judge found in the artists favour on the grounds that parody is allowable under Belgian and international copyright law.
