Our last cat-inspired art time was all about Judith Loske & her adorable cat illustrations. Her drawings & paintings are beyond cute, so I thought today we could have a look at some inspirational contemporary cat art. It’s very different from your regular cute cat illustration and I have to say upfront – I would be very selective while picking a painting for my living room, but at the same time – it’s fascinating to discover that some people see cats in such a unique way that they incorporate them into art like this.
Below is just a little selection from the Saatchi website (your ultimate online art market place). I wouldn’t be afraid to say that there are hundreds of thousands of painting on Saatchi & at least a few hundred of them somehow work around the whole cat theme. I particularly like the one below by a Serbian artist Selena Tabakovic. It looks as if a futuristic Leonarda da Vinci drew this! I also like the colourful cat face by Spanish artist Anora Ashurova – I think it would look gorgeous in a flat with a super contemporary interior decor! Here’s a run down of come of my favourite paintings:
