Pisica Pătrată x Un-hidden Bucharest Art Toy P
A mysterious part-parsnip part-cat is here to guide you to self-knowledge. 🎢 This small cat is entirely handcrafted by the artist out of wood, then painted in acrylics and protected with lacquer. It is a 50 x 50 x 95 mm art toy who likes to hang out in the garden, telling stories with the fireflies and pixies. 🌱✨
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…
Parsnip originates from the Mediterranean region and it was favoured by the Romans? The vegetable was made into wine, beer and even jam, as well as dried and ground into a type of flour for sweet cakes. 🍺🍪
Parsnip is also used in holistic medicine and it’s recommended to be included in a healthy diet as it contains a lot of nutrients and Vitamin C, B1 and E. ⚖
