Feline-Infused Satirical Art
Svetlana Petrova Merges Cat Images With Classic Paintings

By: Jordy Eleni (Superstar) Mar 27, 12

Russian artist Svetlana Petrova has created a series of cat-infused classic art pieces. An ode to her own cat Zarathustra, Petrova’s work is unlike any other series; she claims that the felines can serve to improve the work of famous paintings, adding some welcomed humor into the mix.

The Svetlana Petrova paintings all feature a large, superimposed orange-tinged cat. The juxtaposition of the plump animal alongside Da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ and Velázquez’s ‘Venus At Her Mirror’ is enough to make any viewer chuckle, or at least appreciate a modern interpretation of the authentic pieces.

The satirical Petrova portraits shed light upon the way in which technology assists in the remodeling of such projects. With some simple online tools, fans of the collection may produce a similar series from home.
