No Rival is an urban based apparel company from the San Francisco Bay Area. Counter-Balance, a brand also based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, blatantly ripped-off a design concept originally executed by No Rival in May 2008.
The true artistic credit goes to Ricardo Bellver who created this wonderful sculpture in 1877. The statue resides in Madrid, Spain in one of the cities largest parks.
Take a look at the following images and you tell me Counter-Balance isn’t trying to bite the NR style…
