Cat has great impact in history of art

My current work deals a lot with Continuous learning journey for adult particularly in art, ensuring the philosophical narrative  of the exhibition accessible to general public. It’s been a great pleasure to read through the curator’s thematic thesis and researching about the artists presented in the exhibition that I realised Cat has great impact in the history of Art!

Artist like Tsuguharu Foujita from early 20s who love to paint his model with cat.

Art book such as “The Book of the Cat” dated in 1903, by Mabel Humphrey and Elizabeth Fearne Bonsall, illustrated by Elizabeth Fearne Bonsall documented the earlier century cat in Arts, it’s interesting to see the subject matter focus more on cat. I was lucky to find the online copy of the book to read, it’s also a great book to share with the young ones, to appreciate cats. click here to read the book online. and also, link to rare books and special collections of children’s literature

What have I been up to?

It’s been a busy month during the entire May, with my current work demand and thoughts on getting the work done. I start to forget what I used to truly enjoyed most, cat, sewing, photography and creativity input. I always find it amazing at all those outstanding creativity people, how they manage their time and their creativity output.

I stop to blog about cats when Charlie was missing, we have been searching him for quite a while till my sis convinced me that Charlie should be adopted by a kind soul… right till that I saw this cat whom resemble of Charlie, it strike me that I should not stop and I should continue for what I truly loved…

I went to search for my inspiration with cats and anything about cats and found this talented illustrator who is based in Singapore – he drew wonderful illustration with encouraging poems and heart warming sentences. I went to support his event with Asian Festive of Children’s Content and bought his set of postcards. Because of him, I also discovered this cool book store Grassroot Book Room (草根书室) and pick up this book titled Tabineko Report by Arikawa Hiro, it’s a book about a cat’s report of a wonderful world. with all the connection about cats – the creativity flow within the universe.
