An artist goes by the nickname Barbie LovesDisney, made a series of artworks about what would happen if cats were the subjects of famous paintings. Needless to say, the results are spectacular!
When it comes to ideas and inspiration, the artist revealed the surprising inspiration behind her artworks.
“Looking at historical artworks takes me right back to that time; I start daydreaming about that moment with the artist and his subject. What were they talking about? What did the artist leave out? How long was the subject sitting before their pets jumped into their lap for a cuddle?”
By adding cats into famous paintings, the artist has created “reimagined” artworks that are winning the Internet’s heart. “I created these “reimagined” artworks using my cats, and the artwork I love and admire.”
The artist also said, “We run a little TNR (trap-neuter-release) program in our neighborhood and kept these four kittens when they were trapped. They were difficult to tame but we fell in love with them as we got to know them.”
