Ink kittens

Cat Artist: Anita Yan Wong
I have always included big cats in my works but I have seriously started incorporated house cats into my art creation during 2018 when I met the neighborhood cat “Tux”. He appeared one day during my walk and started taking a walk with me every day. I am inspired by Tux every time I see him – his cool black shiny coat and his moves inspired my ink painting series – “Jumping kittens” and it later evolved into my current ink painting series– “ink kittens”. I use only black sum-e ink and two calligraphy brushes to paint my black furry friend – Tux. I feel cat brings energy into my projects, movement into my brush works and calmness into my life.

" It usually takes about 10 mins to make ink kitten painting, this is the fast forward video of a 8 mins long demo video. I don't use eraser nor pencil sketch, it is how I was taught as a traditional artist since I were young."
