About Pisica Pătrată
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.

Did you know that…
- Grad (toponymy) (Cyrillic: Град) is a Slavic word meaning “town”, “city”, “castle” or “fortified settlement” that appears in numerous Slavic toponyms.
- the gradian is a unit of measurement of an angle, equivalent to 1/400 of a turn, 9/10 of a degree, or π/200 of a radian. It is also known as gon (from Greek γωνία/gōnía for angle), grad, or grade. In continental Europe, the French term centigrade was in use for one-hundredth of a grad. This was one reason for the adoption of the term Celsius to replace centigrade as the name of the temperature scale.
