Fat Cat Art

Svetlana Petrova is a Russian artist and the owner of Zarathustra. Zarathustra is a very fat ginger cat and Internet star – but for reasons unlike any other feline Internet star.

“I’ve had cats before and included them in my work, like playing in theatre shows and I’ve made costumes for them. But I thought, ‘What can I do with Zarathustra, because my mother spoilt him and he’s so fat’. Zarathustra likes posing and is a really intelligent cat. He likes to lie on his back and make strange faces like he's speaking with somebody, so I began to take photos of him and inserted them into paintings.”BBC News
