This Japanese Artist Turns Cats Into Royals In Oil Paintings (11 Pics)

This Japanese Artist Turns Cats Into Royals In Oil Paintings (11 Pics)

bored panda - 6 months ago

Tohukiro Kawai is a Japanese surrealist contemporary artist who's best known for his regal cat paintings. Unique and whimsical, the paintings of royal cats look both majestic and kingly while at the same time putting a smile on the spectator's face. By drawing inspiration from the Renaissance style of painterly technique, Tohukiro delivers a unique visual style full of myths, legends, and fantasies.

"Kawai approaches to work on the now fragile bond between story and picture to bring the two into reunion. Since gods and faith are less related to our modern society, Kawai complements the theme with his own imagination," the artist's official page reads. "Kawais painting is always an illustration without chapters with classical technique portraying a story of modern lives."

Scroll down below to see 10 of Tahukiro Kawai's beautiful oil paintings of regal felines and vote for the ones that you like the most!
