Pisica Pătrată x Un-hidden Bucharest Art Toy B
Do you believe in magic? 🔮 This small black square cat looks like it’s conjuring evil powers! Resistance is futile, join the dark side!
It is entirely handcrafted by the artist out of solid soft wood, then painted in acrylics and protected with lacquer. It is an 85 x 70 x 100 mm art toy ready to take over the world! 😈
Alexandru Ciubotariu aka Pisica Pătrată is one of the most acclaimed illustrators and muralists in Romania, and also the founder of the Comic Strip Museum. He constantly works, draws square cats and accepts all sorts of challenges. His street-art works signal forgotten places and inspire dialogue.
Ciubi is one of the artists with whom we lovingly collaborate with interesting results in projects such as CAPITOL Cinema / Summer Theatre and Un-hidden Bucharest. This summer we explored Pisica Pătrată’s universe full of colour and positive messages. It is a multifaceted cat, omnipresent in the local public space, which alerts many marginalized or even avoided subjects.
Un-hidden Bucharest is a cultural project produced by Save or Cancel x feeder.ro, designed as a series of 3 new art interventions and a guided art journey into public space, aiming at humanizing Bucharest and promoting its understanding and exploration through art. The 3 new urban installations/signals at Centrului Național al Dansului București Sala Omnia, Lente, Cinema Marconi, are created by the artists Pisica Pătrată, Skinny Bunny, VJ VLC, Sorina Vazelina & Primitiv Print.
Did you know that…
Many cultures around the world have blamed the forces of evil for the disappearance of the Moon during lunar eclipses for hundreds of years. A lot of myths, legends and scary tales about demons, angry gods and animal spirits consuming the Moon can be heard in every part of the world.
The Inca thought that the Great Spirit of the Jaguar, an ethereal Godlike animal being, once flew in the sky and attacked the Moon. The blood-red tint of the celestial body during an eclipse scared them and fearing that the Jaguar will attack them next, they threw spears at the Moon, howling and making noise to scare the spirit.
On January 31 there will be a Total Lunar Eclipse and this small art toy looks like it’s up to no good! What if it thinks of summoning the Spirit of the Jaguar? 😬
