Fat Cat Proves no Art Masterpiece is Complete Without a Feline Angle

All of these masterpieces were missing one key element. The Feline angle!

Contemporary artists often get criticized for not being able to produce work that has the potential of reaching classic status in times to come. However, what they lack in originality and artistry, they make up for in creativity and humor.

The latest case in point is of a Russian artist named Svetlana Petrova, who has painted her pet cat Zarathustra into classic art. As a result, the paintings look fresher and the cat looks happier and plumper than ever.

Check out the pieces of classic art that Zarathustra has invaded:

Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci


Whistler’s Mother by James McNeill Whistler


Escaping Criticism by Pere Borrell del Caso


Catherine II by Dmitry Levitsky


Heroes by Viktor Vasnetsov


Ameri-cat Gothic by Grant Wood


Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci


The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí


Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix


The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli

Petrova inherited Zarathustra after her mother passed away. The two instantly formed a bond and have been inseparable ever since. This relationship between the owner and the pet soon turned artistic when Petrova got the idea of incorporating the plumpy feline into her profession as well.

Presented above is just a small collection of Petrova's work. To view more such classic paintings, visit fatcatart.ru or her official Facebook page.
