Feline Art Takeover Shows No Signs Of Slowing

Yesterday may have been National Dog Day, but there’s certainly been no shortage of cat-related buzz in the art world, from this feline-centric exhibition at 356 Mission in San Francisco to Irena Jurek’s sex kittens in New York. Now the photographic group and online exhibition platform Humble Arts Foundation is seizing the, um, meowgeist with “New Cats In Art Photography,” a serious-sounding array of 100 images curated by Jon Feinstein.

There are kittens-as-colorful-still-lifes, as in Jamie Campbell’s portrait above. There are cats climbing on girls in their underwear; cats refusing to look at the camera; enormous cats that look like they should really be running around in a jungle rather than sitting in someone’s suburban cupboard; and regal portraits of dapper young men holding their pets. If this digital exhibition proves anything, it’s that there’s no such thing as cute overload (and that the art world isn’t shedding its cat obsession anytime soon.)
