Russian Fat Cat is Art World's Muse



When it comes to art parodies, there’s definitely been plenty of them. However, Svetlana Petrova has taken this new form of art to another level, featuring her pet cat Zarathustra in an online Cat Art Mew-seum of sorts. Check out some of her hilarious (and creative) re-imaginings of classics:

Some of Zarathustra’s popular artworks include the Botticelli’s famous The Birth of Venus. At least the hair colour matches…

And what about modern art? Ah, Gustav Klimt was obviously imagining a fat ginger cat when he painted The Kiss:

Strangely, Zarathustra doesn’t seem too out of place in a Salvador Dali piece…

There’s also huge potential in Eugene Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People – who says cats can’t lead people? Just check the number of searches for ‘cat videos’.

Leading isn’t the only thing Zarathustra’s doing in The Card Players by Paul Cézanne…

But perhaps Edouard Manet’s Olympia was a bit much for the kitty.
