Graphic depicting a girl and her cat, which is remarkably reminiscent of a family portrait. An illustration with decorative elements that highlight the large cat. The homeowner stands proudly next to her beloved cat, perfectly matched.
Animals are one of the oldest and most intensively used motifs in art. From Palaeolithic cave paintings to postmodern artefacts, they are constantly present in visual representations and interpretations of the world created by humans. Their representation changes with the times. Today, they are often depicted as family members and as pets, as someone close to humans.
graphic / visual artist
Greek artist raised in the wilderness of Crete. She studied and graduated in Athens with a degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communication. She currently works in Berlin, which inspires her to create more illustrations. Her circumstances growing up made her a nature lover, but she has always been curious about the craziness of urban life. She is inspired by the environment she lives in and the emotions that surround her. For her, illustration is a way to express her dreams and feelings in a surreal way. She likes to create faces and figures, focusing more on their different emotions and expressions. Katerina’s paintings never run out of colours, as she has learned to live in colourful cities with a strong multicultural character. Her works can be described as psychedelic and definitely surreal.
“My aim is to capture as much emotion as possible in a way that makes the viewer notice the image for a few minutes. Through my paintings I want to evoke positive emotions, but sometimes I like to evoke a mysterious absurdity.” – Katerina Fotaki
