“Sleepy Cat” is a Japanese style “sumi-e” art of an artist Irina Terentieva (aka AnimaAllegra at Etsy).
The art of Sumi-e brush painting aims to depict the spirit, rather than the semblance of the object. Sumi-e is noted for its spontaneity.
“…cute cuts through all
layers of meaning and says,
“Let’s not worry about complexities, just love me.”
—Dr. Denis Dutton, Philosopher of art
