Italian artist accuses Roger Waters of plagiarism with album cover

Does the cover of Roger Waters’s new album Is This The Life We Really Want? too closely resemble the work of Italian artist Emilio Isgrò?

Per Rockol, Isgro called the album cover “blatant plagiarism of my works”. A hearing on the issue is planned for June 27.
