An Ode to Cats by Feline-Loving Artists Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, and More

Continuing the inaugural cat art extravaganza that united cat lovers, artists, and art enthusiasts in 2014, Think Tank Gallery in Los Angeles is hosting part deux. Cat Art Show LA 2: The Sequel features more than 70 globally recognized artists, including Mark Ryden, Kat Von D, Norman Reedus, Marc Dennis, and Travis Lampe.

Cat-tastic artworks are up for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to non-profit Kitten Rescue. “We have asked each artist the basic question, what is the true meaning of cat for you — ally, domestic partner, enemy, frenemy, allergic reaction or guru? From that, each artist’s interpretation is unique and honest,” curator and journalist Susan Michals explained.

See a preview of how artists interpreted the meaning of these furry muses in our gallery. Cat Art Show LA 2 is open through Sunday, March 27
