Comedian Finds Blurred Photo Of Herself At Art Exhibit--And Soon Unearths An Artistic Scandal

British comedian Bisha K Ali was going about her day when she received an unusual text message from a friend in Calgary, Canada.

Ali shared her story on Twitter:

Apparently a photo of Ali was making an appearance in a Calgary art installation...

It was Ali's face, but she'd never had her pic taken under that Calgary overpass.

And... the photos have been there for two years.

Things were definitely not adding up.

Why would an art installation in Calgary feature photos of all these comedians?

The other featured comedians were just as perplexed.

At this point, it seemed clear the artist had stolen someone work.

Ali was not going to make the same mistake.

Breakthrough! The artist lifted the photos from promotional materials for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

And it turns out the artist of a certain Calgary art installation just happened to be visiting the Fringe that year.

Besant has almost been caught before...

But this time, the evidence is irrefutable.

Besant conned Calgary out of $20,000 and then stole someone else's photos.

Let's hope the city will hold him accountable.

Calgary has announced they will remove the art installation immediately, and the city is investigating. Authorities have not ruled out the possibility that Besant is in breach of contract and may have to return his $20,000 fee. Of course, none of this would have happened without the expert sleuthing of Bisha Ali and her team of friends.
