Romanian artist Mihaela Atomei is inspired by Old Master paintings in her approach to portraiture. The background echoes hints of early Renaissance paintings, which stands in contrast to the Botero-esque feline regally and indulgently perched on the pedestal. The cat, drawn from the artist's imagination, is less about capturing the appearance of a known cat and more about revisiting an old and revered genre with humor and comic relief.
