Love Song - 2010
Paul Koh is the Singapore-based artist behind the vibrant and happiness inducing art known as catmaSutra. The talented cat lover seems to have endless ideas for the serene kitty that appears in his paintings, and describes his work as, "a unique and original cat art collection that captures the charm, nonchalance, and cheekiness of the quintessential cat, unraveling the deep philosophical astuteness of its free-spirited nature."

I love how Koh draws from a wide range of influences, from Surrealist Pop, and Cat Art Parody, to of course, his Zen-Inspired cat art collection; However, the main inspiration behind his work is something much more personal. He says that his paintings are, "based on the essence of my two cats, Halo and Angel (a ginger tabby and a Russian Blue), and crystallized into the catmaSutra cat, with its trademark 'eyes-wide-closed' and 'ear-to-ear' grin," symbolizing a deep-seated childhood innocence cum devil-may-care bravado!"
It's true that Paul is able to perfectly capture the playful kitty spirit within his paintings, and in addition to sharing his art, he was also kind enough to send along some pictures of his two beautiful muses!
The artist's muse!
