Mews: Cat sculptures by Takashi Masaki

Hi everyone,

Today we have a special cat art post for you! We recently came across these wonderful cat sculptures by artist Takashi Masaki.

He creates these in Hiroshima, Japan and they feature a mixture of real cats and fantasy cats. Each sculpture is handmade without the use of a mold. They are made of pottery and painted with acrylic paint.

Below we have listed two of his recent artworks and we may be featuring more of his work in the future! 🙂

  1. He is brilliant! Thanks for sharing that link, Marc-Andre. I doubt I can afford his work, but the photos on his Facebook home page are great fun to look at and to secretly lust for! Ha!

    1. I know what you mean!!! My friend is currently teaching english in Japan not too far away from him. I have been bullying her to go see him and buy EVERYTHING haha. 🙂

  2. I love cats and I have presently 6. These Japanese cat sculptures are typically American culture, Ugly, cartoon-like and infantile. They are insult to the elegant beautifully stylized cast that are present in REAL JAPANESE culture. Just being ‘different’ does not constitute true art.

    1. Hi christine. Thanks for your opinion. Art is up to thhe eye of the beholder and tak also does traditional work. It just happens that this particular one was a modern take. 🙂
