Eye See You

Eye See You
(Also known as Basket O' Kitty Kat)

Artist: Milano

Acrylic on Artist Board

Keaneism, Faux-Fauvist


One of Milano’s earlier works of the avant-garde Faux-Fauvist style. The subject is Kitty Kat, which floats within the basket on a sea of calm waters.  The heavy lines of the cat basket, and the harsh pink background draw on the early 20th century works of Matisse and Derain. The brilliant blue of Kitty’s plaintive eyes an homage to the works Keane.  More subtle brush work outlining Kitty’s furry body, however, call to mind the Impressionist movement and the lack of cat limbs or defined body perhaps pay homage to Picasso or even Damian Hirst. The oversized head forces not only our perspective but also one over-riding question: What are you lookin’ at?
