If there’s anything that would make Titian’s “Venus of Urbino” or Botticelli’s “La Primavera” more worthy of our gaze, it would definitely be the inclusion of a massive orange tabby cat. Now, this opinion dawned upon us not through a series of studies and interviews, but by happening upon Russian artist Svetlana Petrova’s “Fat Cat Art.”
It’s official. That thing that classic art has been missing is a chubby reclining kitty. The evidence is below:
And so an art project was born, one that combines high-resolution copies of famous paintings (with Zarathustra’s portrait digitally inserted) that Petrova paints over to create the effect of an old canvas. And boy, are we ever glad she found her calling. Because Fat Cat Art is simply EVERYTHING.
