    “Use of cats to improve classic art.” Really ?

    @Dominic – I know what you mean…I’m waiting for my “meds” to kick in and then maybe…

  13. Yui

    Nice cat, but what’s with all this old time paintings in the same picture ???

  15. TheSlime

    Cat pictures? I’m staring at a hippy girl walk by my window in a flowing summer dress looking like she has not a care in the world. She probably owns a fat cat as well… and enjoys “meds” every now and again. Stress? What stress?

    Reminds me of the fat cat Garfield LOl

    As a painter of crazy cat art, I am impressed with the originality and the three diminensional quality of this artwork.

    @Carol. its not painted, its shopped, lots of people can this kind of thing rather easily, if its done by an artist and in an exhibition its art if its done on a random website such as reddit, or memebase, its just people being silly and having fun, to be honest its just a bit of silly fun, and if someone can explain how this is art, then we need an exhibition to all the user generated content on memebase
