Classic Works Of Art Improved By The Addition Of A Fat Ginger Cat

Cats Improving Works Of Art

Svetlana Petrova has a weird hobby – photoshopping her fat ginger cat Zarathustra into classic works of art to ‘improve them’.

Svetlana Petrova is some Russian woman who decided one day that it would be a really funny idea to photoshop her fat cat Zarathustra onto famous works of art. And why not hey? Everyone loves cats don’t they? I mean if you do something involving cats then it’s got a 90% chance of taking the internet by storm and making you a shit load of money.

So of course, it took the internet by storm and now she’s got her first physical exhibition coming up soon. She spoke to the BBC about how it all started and developed:

‘I lost my mother in 2008 and she left me Zarathustra. I got horrible depression after her death and for two years I was unable to do something creative. By chance a friend asked me ‘why don’t you make an art project with your cat because he’s so funny.’

‘I’ve had cats before and included them in my work, like playing in theatre shows and I’ve made costumes for them. But I thought, ‘What can I do with Zarathustra, because my mother spoilt him and he’s so fat.’

‘Zarathustra likes posing and is a really intelligent cat. He likes to lie on his back and make strange faces like he’s speaking with somebody, so I began to take photos of him and inserted them into paintings.’

‘I liked the result so I sent it to some friends, other artists and galleries. Everyone laughed so much, so I made a website, but then forgot about it because I had another project.’

‘After a few months, another friend saw my cat work in my albums and asked why I had it. I told him it was my cat and he said: ‘Your cat is all over the internet!’’

Wow. What  a story huh – very inspirational. Here’s a bunch of her most famous works:
