Cat Person

This artist is clearly a cat person. I came across this series of black ink and watercolor paintings of felines and was immediately struck by how perfectly the artist captured their attitudes, their physicality, and their moods. This artist, thought I, has cats. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find (or read) the artist’s name. That didn’t stop me from celebrating their glorious work, though.

According to Google Translate, the artist’s technique sounds fascinating, and I wish I could watch them in action. They first paint the outline, the dark space, and then they drip water on the painting until it forms the shapes and textures they’re looking for. If only there were a name…

  4. Someone shared these images with me a few months ago. Knowing I’m an ink artist, they thought I would be interested in the technique. I have not yet attempted the experiment but I’m pretty sure I could not achieve results like these. The wonder of these works of art is that they manage to look at once accidental and out of control but also measured and precise.

  11. I love these! The dog you included is every bit is great as the cats if you ask me. I too would love to see the artist in action. The finished product are whimsical and yet determined – not unlike their subjects!
