Paper cutouts, splattered paint and confetti are just some of the motifs that make these feline portraits stand out from similar works. Already an iconic symbol of pop culture, cats rule social media posts, viral videos and have even inspired a myriad of famed art projects.

Sylvia Stølan's compositions celebrate cats' viral status and are accented with psychedelic elements. Featuring geometric motifs that resemble exploding fireworks, each of the artist's images boasts a different color scheme ranging from more vibrant to more muted.

Based in Trondheim, Norway, Sylvia Stølan uses her visual communication and illustration background to inspire her authentic works. The result is a set of feline portraits that fuses traditional photographs with playful collage imagery.
