This is the first posting under the theme “Mid-century Moderncat” where I will highlight mid-twentieth century modern art and design featuring cats in some form or another.
To start the series, I’d like to share with you these beautiful acrylic cat sculptures by Brazilian artist Abraham Palatnik. The op art design is embedded inside the acrylic form, making the pattern visible from both sides. These are just two designs from a large collection of animal sculptures that he created using the same technique.
Featuring modern sculptural forms and incredible abstract patterns, these pieces are extremely collectible. They can usually be found on eBay and other auction sites. The two excellent examples shown above both came from ModCats.
