Artist Creates Cat-Filled Print Full Of Famous Internet Cats

This. This is art. 

Meet the talented Rebecca Salinas, a painter who adores cats. And it really shows. 

We had the privilege to speak with Rebecca and discover her inspiration behind this masterpiece!  

"I've always loved and drawn cats my whole life. I am in advanced art classes now at UCF, in Florida, and finally have the freedom to choose my own content. The theme was 'populated space' and I immediately knew I wanted to do a painting full of cats. I'm in a Facebook group called 'This Cat Is C H O N K Y' and I love a lot of cats that are famous from there."

Rebecca also mentioned that two of her own cats can be found in the painting, and that she used submitted photos from the 'This Cat Is C H O N K Y' Facebook group as pose references!

"I really love it when I can laugh at my paintings, and this one is one of my most funny paintings yet," added Rebecca. 

According to Rebecca's post in the C H O N K Y group, there are 50 recognizable cats in this one painting alone! Do you think you can pinpoint them all?

Thanks for sharing your lovely work with the world, Rebecca! Check out more of her amazing art on Instagram or Facebook

Art Student Taught Her Pet Rat To Paint With His Feet

Amalie Markota Andersen has taught her pet rat, Darius, to do something quite extraordinary -- paint! Anderson herself is an animation and digital arts student and told The Insider that it only took Darius roughly 10 minutes to complete a masterpiece.

Darius used his feet to create his work and his painting have gone viral multiple times on Twitter and Tumblr. He's sold about 3 or 4 pieces. 

Unfortunately, the talented Darius passed away earlier in 2019. Anderson says her and Darius had a special bond and we're 100% sure of that.

Darius and his paintings have been going viral on the internet since this past Saturday, when pictures of him and his work were shared by a now-private account.

Art Project Raises Awareness For Shelter Dogs With Abstract Paintings Created By Dogs Shaking Paint Off Their Body

Catching dogs on camera during a particularly vigorous shake has become something of an art form. Canismo, a project from a group of Brazil-based artists, is turning water-logged pups into artists using a few buckets of non-toxic paint with the goal of supporting the adoption of shelter animals. The campaign gives dogs the freedom to express themselves and allow their inner artist to be seen, in a bright -literally bright, and adorable way. After having a harmless paint made with cornstarch and food coloring, pour all over their bodies, the dogs reacted by shaking it off onto canvases that were hanged around them. As stated in the description of the project, "the shake of the paint reveals a remarkable exercise of freedom, where each drop of ink bears the stain of prejudice." 18 unique artworks were created out of the project, which benefits the Procure1Amigo shelter.

I don’t know art, but I know what I like, and I like this painting pig.

Freed from a life of factory farming, Pigcasso is using her paint brush to express an abstract message of animal liberation. Pigcasso resides on Farm Sanctuary SA, a South African branch of the animal rescue, where she enjoys the finer things: Eating, sleeping, and painting.

Easily better than anything my hands have ever put to canvas, Pigcasso’s works are colorful, bizarre, and a real joy to watch being made. This is almost as fun as that skateboarding dog, Spuds Mackenzie. Almost.
