Works

Yeli Chuan 

Yeli is a Singapore-born artist based in Melbourne. She is intrigued by the dichotomies present around us, be it traditional and contemporary, light and dark, soft and hard, heavy and fun. Through juxtaposition, her works seek to find a harmonious balance. She mostly works with pen and watercolours/acrylics. Yeli draws inspiration from both her environment and imagination, and uses art to express herself, or just to make life a little better. Her recent muse is Gregory, her beautiful silver tabby who likes to attack her ankles.

Renee Gauci   

I am a Melbourne-based artist who has been captivated by visual arts since studying painting in the late ‘90s. Since then I’ve shown my work in Melbourne and Tokyo (and via Instagram). My illustrations are inspired by my everyday thoughts and experiences which are translated to paper in a whimsical, reflective and playful style. My interests in philosophy and science are also often expressed in my work.

When your cat starts to smell like ‘old man’.

In making this piece, I was inspired by my fur baby (old man).

Lilly the Cat Artist

Lola Kalinski-Digaletos 

Lola Kalinski-Digaletos studied a Bachelor of Animation at RMIT university in Melbourne. Her pieces generally explore myths, ghost stories and fairy-tales. She loves to make things that she would have been fascinated by as a child.

Night Goddess Kitties
$4.50 each
3 for $12

These sweet, seemingly temperate kitties can change their mood in a flash, depending on where you pet them. During the day they are sweet, domestic, and perhaps a little bit unpredictable every now and then. At night their eyes are sharp, their claws come out and they become their other self, the hunter…The devout among them worship the Egyptian goddess Pakhet – ‘she who scratches.’

These works may be taken when purchased if required.

LittleBlueSeal

Ayla loves to make people happy and has discovered that she can do that through her art by creating adorable animal sculptures that make you want to smile when you see them!

As an animal lover and one who has lived with cats my entire life, I am excited not only to share art in the CATShibition, but also to connect to a community of people who love cats just as much as I do!

Monica Tuohy

After 20+ years working in retail graphic design, Monica decided to pursue a wholly artistic career, one that has passion and integrity and is not purely about making money. It is also about exploration, experimentation and creative satisfaction. Monica has always enjoyed drawing and art making and was one of those kids who spent as much time on the cover of her assignments as on the content. During her BA degree she spent a lot of time illustrating and printmaking and enjoyed them both greatly but at that time chose to pursue graphic design. So in 2015, Monica seized the opportunity to finally combine all her favourite things; her love of animals, vintage illustration, printmaking and having a laugh, and thus Leo’s Print Pad was born.

Ever since I can remember I have always loved animals. And being born under the Leo star sign, I am destined to love cats in particular; big and small. Through my art I want to celebrate their beauty, strength and playfulness while also highlighting the importance of conserving them in our world.

TantricTotems

Mandy loves the meditative process of creating unique pieces that warm the home. Her crafted cats are inspired by her own furry friends and all those she meets along the way using many different materials, including yarn, felt, wool fleece, papier maché, clay and the odd bit of abstract painting on the side.

Fancy Cats
$85
The spectrum of bold to subtle colours of pure wool felt inspired my range of patchwork felt Fancy Cats. Teamed with both vintage and modern fabrics, they are lovingly hand-stitched and sometimes embellished with buttons, beads etc – whatever each one calls out for while putting the pieces together.

 

These works may be taken when purchased if required.

Cat Art Dolls
$155
Lady Cat art dolls start with a body sculpted using a cloth plaster technique resulting in a firm yet lightweight base, of the ‘stump doll’ style made popular in Tudor England. Doll heads are sculpted in Fimo air dry clay and hand painted with their own features. Each doll then evolves individually, the finished item achieved by intuitively adding decoration as the work progresses, culminating in a unique feline.

The show continues to  24 December 2018
