Violet Astor is a UK based artist who specialises in large scale monochrome prints of animals. Initially working in charcoal, Violet has travelled the planet to capture scenes of endangered species in their natural habitats. Violet is drawn to the cat family, particularly tigers and intricately portrays scenes of both stillness and action in her artworks. Dheerata धीरता (Sangfroid) confronts the viewer with the compelling stare of the tiger, whilst Violet uses a refined and unfinished approach to communicate character and vitality in Utsaah उत्साह (Rapture).
If you’re after something bold and eye-catching, look no further than Victoria Topping. Victoria works in mixed media to inject her prints with warmth and energy. In works such as Spirit Animal Victoria layers rich reds with bold pinks to instantly grab your attention.
Indulge in the surreal and playful with work by Carl Moore. Carl uses humour to add a strong sense of narrative to his art. Whether exposing tragicomedy in The Cat Who Wanted to be a Bee, or using his signature ‘Dripster’ style in Snow Leopard – Sage, Carl tops rich block colours with graphic illustrations of cat-like creatures to create work that is at once captivating and comical.
Paintings, drawings and engravings of cats are one of the most enduring subjects in the history of animal art. Famously favoured by the Egyptians for their symbolic and sacred status, images of cats adorned tombs throughout the Ancient world. From their esteemed beginnings, cats have not necessarily held the position of the subject matter for very long, yet artists such as Paul Klee and Frida Kahlo sought to change that.
Klee’s Cat and Bird and Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird brought cats back to the forefront, where they remain today. Cat prints continue to be hugely sought after and collected by art lovers around the world. Whether used to expose humour, as in Mychael Barratt’s print, Ai Weiwei’s Cat and Carl Moore’s work, or to capture majesty, power and finesse, as in the work of Violet Astor and Keith Moore, cats have existed in some of the most defining and significant movements throughout art history.
