I’m not sure of the exact location of this painting of a giant Yellow Prancing Cat with Wings and a huge Cheshire Cat-like Grin, but it is visible from the High Line Park, somewhere between 30th and 20th Streets.
Here it is with slightly more perspective, if that helps.
Update 1/16/18: I just discovered that the artist is Joseph Ford! Thanks, Internet!
The other evening, when we were at the Joseph Gross Gallery for the Joseph Grazi exhibit, we could not help but also visit the Into the Wild exhibit taking place at Art Now NY Gallery, because, basically, they share a space. I took this photo of an apparent Cat with Laser Vision done with Needlepoint, but am unable to credit the artist because there were no little plaques or stickers with identifying info next to each artwork. And you know how annoying that can be for an anal retentive blogger like myself. If you are the maker of this piece, or know who is, please enlighten me in the comments, thanks!
I’m definitely not what you would call a “Cat Person,” but I sure do love watching a life-size Garfield wander the streets of an unspecified suburban landscape in this charmingly morose video for the song “Pull It Over Me” by Toronto based band, Grounders. In case the minor chord wooziness didn’t give it away, “Pull It Over Me” is a break up song, the occurrence of which puts Garfield in a deep enough funk to, it appears, spontaneously murder someone on the beach and get away with it. Hilarious!
But seriously, you can tell these guys have a deeply-rooted love of pop music that, according to their bio, ranges from “David Bowie and Devo, to The Velvet Underground, Neu! and The Zombies.” They sound like guys I would want to be friends with. Surely, there is no higher praise that can be offered than that. RIYL: The Kinks, Weezer. Grounders‘ eponymously titled debut album will be released on Nevado Records on May 12th, 2015. Enjoy!
Here’s one for all of you Crazy Cat Ladies out there.
