Svetlana Petrova is a professional artist and cat-lover, as well as the name behind the hilarious project Fat Cat Art. The artist, based in St. Petersburg, Russia, is aiming to introduce more people to fine art in a fun, silly way. She does so by painting her chunky ginger cat into the world’s most famous works of art, a process that can take months to complete.

Petrova credits her favorite feline, 9-year-old Zarathustra, with saving her from depression after her mother passed away. She writes: “My mom loved the cat so much, and I think that is why he developed such a sensitive personality. He decided himself to become a model and performance artist.”

The adorable cat is now bringing smiles to faces all over the world, largely thanks to his incredible modeling talents.

Fat Cat Art“It’s a challenge, he has to fit perfectly into a masterpiece, in position, in expression, and sometimes it takes months to get the right photo. I print my works and paint them, emulating the style of the great masters, to make the cat’s image look very natural in well-known masterpieces.”
