In our online gallery and art shop, you can find some of the most unexpected pieces made by local artists who embed in their artworks the authentic vibe of street art & graffiti.
These 3 hand-made lapel pins painted by Pisica Pătrată depict his square cat character, going through different emotions, as observed in their expressions.
After many years of drawing and painting on the streets of Romania or in his studio in Bucharest, Pisica Pătrată manages to embed many ideas, concepts and emotions, expressed only through the faces of his characters.
There are 3 available. Each pin is one of a kind, hand-painted in acrylics on heavy cardboard, finished with a resin dome, attached to a stick (needle).
Dimensions: pin w 1,5 x h 1,5 cm; together with stick + collar, the pin has a height of 7,6 cm. Mounted on black cardboard signed by the artist.
About PISICA PĂTRATĂ
Pisica Pătrată (the Square Cat) is one of the most acclaimed illustrators and muralists in Romania, and also the founder of the Comic Books Museum. He has an intense activity, with many public appearances, book launches, comics, magazines, personal exhibitions, participation in festivals and a long series of murals. In the Un-hidden street art in Romania book and the map, you can find a good part of the works and artistic installations featuring Pisica Pătrată‘s characters, which reconfigure forgotten spaces in the urban environment, galleries or even museums.
In recent years, we have been happy to have several opportunities to collaborate with Pisica Pătrată by creating one of the most beloved murals in Bucharest and a street art installation on the façade of the Capitol Summer Theatre (2008, 2016, 2017). We exhibited some of his astonishing paintings in multiple collective exhibitions at Kube, Lente, Palatul Universul, Romanian Design Week and Imbold Gallery. In the living room and in the urban garden of Lente, you can find the mural made in 2016, within the series Pictăm Pereți, and the wooden totem Un-hidden Bucharest (2017). Also, in collaboration with the Un-hidden Bucharest project, Pisica Pătrată installed 6 wooden panels on the façade of the Cina building, which hosts the M60 Space (2018). At the end of last year (2020) we invited Pisica Pătrată to paint a large canvas during the feeder sound live session with Primărie.
