A personal series of Cat drawings influenced by Japanese traditions and culture created since 2007. Meow
Seven Samurai Cat
Inspired by the classic Japanese movie, “Seven Samurai.”
Samurai Cat(ch) series, red.
Cat Vs Cat (Fish)
In Japanese traditional art “Namazu” – a giant catfish – is believed to cause earthquakes. He lives in the mud under the islands of Japan, and is guarded by the God Kashima who restrains the catfish. I think God was actually a big cat with the hope to save mankind.
RGB Cat painting series, blue. Inspired by Jin (Samurai Champloo) from Japanese animation.
Samurai Cat X
RGB Cat series, red. Inspired by Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin), a Japanese manga and animation from the 90s.
Three Swords Cat
RGB Cat series, green. Inspired by Roronoa Zoro (One Piece) from Japanese manga and animation.
Lord Of Cats
Takeda Neko gen, a preeminent feudal lord with military prestige who sought the control of Japan in the late stage of the Sengoku period.
The Big Catch
Inspired by Japan folklore of Kintaro or “the Golden Boy” battling a giant carp. Perhaps the legend did not mention that Kintaro was actually a cat and he was battling a carp with a “kabuki” makeup.
Japanese style Samurai Cat(ch) series, green.
“Neko” means a cat, and “Jutsu” means technique, method, spell, skill or trick. He’s the cat who is going to be the next hokage (means Fire Shadow)!
