Need a pick-me-up? You've come to the right place. The cat paintings of Adriana Gásperi are so bright and fun it puts a smile on my face every time I see them. The fact that the focus is on the crazy antics of cats, puts an even bigger smile on my face and a little bounce to my step. I hope you feel the same as you learn more about Adriana and her colorful cats.
Adriana has named her company Gatos Ilimitados which, according to Adriana, means,
"cats unlimited" because they do not know boundaries or limits, they can jump really high, land on their four paws, hide into really small spaces, run really fast, hunt, they are flexible, speak human and cat, are extremely intelligent doing their cat stuff, and are unlimited in beauty.
Wow! All that in a name, how could she go wrong?! Sounds like she hit the bountiful kitty jackpot with that name. Let's find out more about Adriana.
Since I was a kid, but professionally since 1998.
Acrylic painting on canvas mostly, but now I started experimenting on different surfaces like old purses, shoes, pillows, which will be available for sale as one of a kind hand -painted items, all vegan materials.
I now have nine cats from 17 years old, our senior, to 7 months old, most of them adopted and rescued. I say hello to all of them individually. They have my attention when they need to talk about their life or if they have an issue with one of their roomies. They usually hang around my art studio and they like jazz, Brazilian, Buddha Bar and Baroque music.
Cats inspire me every day - they are beautiful, witty and funny. I not only paint cats as subjects, I go further and create a story and try to express it on my paintings.
A cat, I am very independent, I don’t like loud noises, I like to sleep, it would be great to jump on top of a roof and feel the wind at night and I don’t like to be bossed around.
I am a vegan artist, all animals deserve compassion, respect, love and freedom.
In Venezuela I am involved with Voluntarios por Los Animales (Animal Volunteers) and Huellas Pet Center. I give part of my proceedings and donate two paintings a year to be auctioned or raffled. In Vienna, Austria, I collaborated with Social Cat Work for a coloring book. Currently, I am creating a painting for Hannah Shaw, Kitten X Lady, to be auctioned for her wonderful project. Also, I just became part of the non-profit organization, “The Art of Compassion Project,” which shares art to promote veganism all over the world.
My cats (paintings) have found their humans in Venezuela, Brazil, Austria, Spain, France and United States. I participated at the Cat Art Show Los Angeles 2016, Tokyo International Art Fair 2016, invited to Bologna Italy for the “Little Treasures” exhibition in November 2016, besides permanent exhibitions at local galleries.
