In 2013, artist Bibi Barba decided to do an online search of her artworks. She discovered that two of her artworks had been replicated in a Polish hotel without her permission. Her designs were used on bar tops, wall panelling and furniture, still in the same colours. Bibi has threatened copyright infringement but the hotel has denied it. Karla Grant sits down with Bibi to talk about her life, her art, and her struggle to prove the copyright infringement of her work five years on.
