Description Sexy, amusing and karmic paintings! Catmasutra paintings showcase pure indulgence at play and at rest. Once again, paulMysh root around pop culture to pull out treasures that continue the catty tales of their cats Angel and Halo… Paul is well known for his idyllic and cheeky portrayal of cats and his paintings featuring the felines have enjoyed sell outs.'Mooching by the Bay' is a play on 'Bathers at Asnières' by Georges Seurat, 1884. It is about going into reverse, painting the Catmasutra cat (and inherently the artist himself) into the landscape once inhabited by workers in Baignade, Asnieres. Herein lies the process of “reversing pop art”, and the opportunity to engage and be awed by the pioneer of the divisionist technique known as Pointillism.
Paul Koh, Singapore Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement Over the years, Paul Koh has created a unique body of captivating and vibrant cat-inspired art that has been extremely well-received and sought after. Quirky, amusing and karmic, Paul's paintings unveil an “in-between” world where innocence and mischief go hand in hand. In each of his paintings, the cats (based on his real-life pets, Halo and Angel) is the artist’s gateway to a new space, a wonderland where emotions are innocent enough to run free, and dreams more than just make-believe. The trademark 'eyes-wide-shut' and 'ear-to-ear grin' of the Catmasutra cats embody this deep-seated childhood innocence cum devil-may-care bravado.
