DescriptionSexy, 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.The Peace Accord was the first of the 'Buddha' Collection or what subsequently led to the Buddha collection. This was exhibited in Catmasutra 1, where the tree frog brokered a peace accord with Halo. The tranquility of the lotus pond in one of those large earthen pots and the serenity of frangipani flowers conspire to be the perfect setting for this seemingly impossible peace treaty. And it is here at this precise moment that I discovered the 'zen' side of Halo, and henceforth, there would always be a painting dedicated to the cat's contemplation of life's quieter moments.
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. This is the essence of Paul's Catmasutra paintings... Check out his website at www.catmasutra.com
