catmaSutra is a painting celebration of the world’s most ubiquitous pet. Cat artist, Paul Koh has, over the decade, built up a collection of paintings inspired by the real-life personalities, eccentricities and adventures of his two pets, Halo, a ginger tabby and Angel, a Russian Blue. Through his paintings, Paul has captured the affectionate inquisitiveness and nonchalant independence typical of the feline.
The term Catmasutra was coined to capture the seemingly zen-like essence of cats in different positions and situations (real-life and make-believe). The artist then draws us into a space where the playful and good-natured juxtapose with the tongue-in-cheek and unexpected…all distilled on canvas to create the catmaSutra cat, distinguished by its trademark ‘eyes-wide-shut’ and ear-to-ear’ grin.
Synthesizing elements from his keen observations on life and experiences, combined with his personal brand of positive karmic energy, Paul has created an extraordinary place where our reality becomes cat – simpler and free-spirited – quaintness.
