About

FE-MEOW 

Have you every considered that some of the greatest artists throughout history may have just been cats? I have... 

Over the past 2 years I  have created a series of prints, enamel pins, greetings cards and tote bags based on some of the greatest artists in history; Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. 

This is where you come in, I would really like to add more artist inspired cat pins to the set but most importantly more women artists. 

Women have been discriminated against for centuries, and major institutions have failed to support the careers of women artists, is it time we fairly represent women in the arts? With last year marking 100 years since the women vote and there being a somewhat shift in the political landscape with women's marches happening around the world, its about time some of the greats get represented too. How best to do this than in feline form, yup... its time to appreciate the best FEMEOW artists in history.

I already have pins representing female artists such as Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Georgia O'Keeffe and Barbara Hepworth but I am looking to add more British female artists to list.

I have chosen to focus on two of my favourites and two very differing artists in style, Sarah Lucas is part of the Young British Artists generation who emerged during the 90s, her work contains visual puns, bawdy humour and found objects. We all like a pun now! You may not be that well known with the name but if someone mentioned the old mattress or the fried egg T-shirt you would know who I was talking about.

The other artist worthy of a place in the cat artist hall of fame is Bridget Riley, she is one of the foremost exponents of OP art, when she first exhibited her work in the 1960s, people were amazed at how they seemed to move, her geometric paintings implore the viewer to reflect on how it physically feels to look.

Both artists have had a huge impact on the art world whether it be paintings that can physically make you feel like you are moving or installation work that makes you take a second look, is that really a mattress with two oranges and a cucumber, is that art? 

Like I said the secrets out, the greatest artists of all time were cats all along! 

(Now you know why nobody has ever seen Banksy!)

Risks and challenges

The most common risk with any overseas manufacturing would be delays in production of seasonal hold ups. The pins are made in China and this may coincide with the Chinese New Year, where factories close for a few weeks, with this in mind I have set the delivery times to March, but it may be a little sooner depending on my stock availability.
