Ping Hatta’s signature Cat Lady characters and her cats with sunglasses are inspired by the amazing women and cats that the artist have encountered in New York. They both share the same qualities: confident, charming, strategic, rebellious, and strong will.
In this collection, Hatta brings back her playful characters with signature pointy eyeliners while continues to explore dichotomies: small hands and feet versus big hair, voluptuous body versus child-like paint strokes.
Her works intend to empower women to be bold, fiercely independent, demanding at all her wills to go get what she wants to achieve, and never be influenced or told by others what to do – just like cats! In all, the artist hopes that the audiences will be able to recognize their cats, or themselves in her art.
