DescriptionRainy days are special days, and I remember always running out to watch the rain as a child. Sometimes, I made paper boats and set them afloat onto the drain. I watch them travel as far down as possible before the rain beat them down. Sometimes after a thunderstorm, a new scene emerges as if the old one has been peeled away. Perhaps that is the true reality, that every moment is a new beginning if we catch ourselves and choose to see it.Stories are always true, it's the facts that mislead.Experience the art of CATMASUTRA as Paul Koh sets out to create an “in-between” world, filled with magic that suddenly grabs us, makes us laugh and remember things that don’t necessarily fit neatly anywhere. In each of his paintings, the cat is the artist’s gateway to a new space that affords us a momentary freedom to dream and make time stand still.
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
