Pisica Pătrată x Un-hidden Bucharest Art Toy Bubblehead
Gazing up into the darkness, the Bubblehead cat likes to contemplate the night sky. Her special power is eavesdripping. ✨ This unique cat is entirely handcrafted by the artist out of wood, then painted in acrylics and protected with lacquer. It is a 70 x 70 x 130 mm art toy who likes to watch the constellations all night long! 🔭
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…
Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky is actually a binary system? Sirius A, the main sequence star and Sirius B, its white dwarf companion, are located at around 8.6 light years from Earth and are moving towards our Sol system. This means that the star system will slightly increase in brightness over the next 60,000 years.
Sirius is also known colloquially as the “Dog Star“, reflecting its prominence in its constellation, Canis Majoris (Greater Dog). The heliacal rising of Sirius marked the flooding of the Nile in Ancient Egypt and the “dog days” of summer for the ancient Greeks, while to the Polynesians in the Southern Hemisphere the star marked winter and was an important reference for their navigation around the Pacific Ocean.
