KIKO'S (COPY AND PASTE) ICONS

by Chuck White

"It is very common for painters of icons to copy the work of the great masters of the past, and Kiko Arguello is no exception."

Read more.

Tim's note: I inserted the (copy and paste) into Chuck's title. You will see why. But then copy and paste is what Kiko does with everything...as more are now discovering.

  2. He copies and pastes original artwork and the Catholic Church so they become a bastardized Kiko creation forever associated with him - for his honor and glory. A brilliant theif I must say

  3. We cannot say that Kiko is a "thief" with respect to his iconography because it is an accepted practice among icon painters and it has been for centuries. We can say, though that very little of his work is original.

    Most importantly, we should ask, "Why cannot the work of Rublev or one of the other traditional artists that Kiko copies be used in the communities? Why must it be Kiko's copies, and his alone that are used?"

    1. Kiko is a modern day Robin Hood! Instead of getting from the rich to give to the poor, he takes from the poor to make himself rich? Could this be it?

      Looking at this in a business like manner. I build a business so my logos must go up and no one else's. This is KIKO'S business so his logo, his songs, his statues, his everything must be identified with him.

    2. Wow. This is illuminating. Very little of Kiko's paintings are original except the oil, paint, and canvas! lol. Yet, many neocats are under the impression that his paintings are original in content so they buy them. Someone is making good money. Then there are the statues, etc. that are being sold in neo stores. Communities are told to buy from neo stores only because they represent the authentic statues, icons, etc. Wow! What a racket!

    3. To Chuck White

      After looking at these pictures some say that the figure of Christ face resembles Kiko. Yes there seems to be a resemblance. That some time ago a comment was made saying "isn't it just beautiful"

      So there is also the difference in the painting of the Trinity. By really looking at it one can see the resemblance of Kiko, Carmen and the priest , the so called Trio. What do you think?

      Another thing is, these Responsibles/ catechists are given so much power over people not through the church but by Kiko. Kiko calls for vocations. Kiko calls for missionaries. Kiko assigns people to missions, to seminaries. Kiko assigns priest to wherever. It seems that Kiko is the hand who is hold the staff over the Bishops of the Diocese in disguise. Am I wrong here? I have so much to absorb and weigh. It has come to a point where I am now making a graph as to who is, where is, how is, etc.

      My thoughts and writing may not be in order and may be mumbo jumbo, but I am seeking answers.

      Lost!

    1. So because you make this comment here does that mean you do not have the courage and personal integrity to tell him yourself? Yes it does. So why then should Chuck care about the opinions of people with no integrity? Search yourself. Why are you this way?

    2. Anon June 19 9:42pm, If you really know me, then speak to me to my face or use your real name like an adult. By the way, you are bound to be "disappointed" again.

    1. Jun 20 9:51AM, so it appears that monies that innocent members of the neo community are expected to fork over to the kikos is asked for with the idea that "it is for the archbishop;" therefore member assumes it's going to the Diocese! If that isn't fraud...!
