WEDNESDAY WALL OF FAME !
Did you ever bump into a yellow cat in the streets? He has travelled all over the world ! Even faced some prison-time. But no matter the reaction of authorities, he keeps on grabbing our attention while sharing with each and everyone an uncomplicated smile. And since he is celebrating twenty years of anniversary unapologetically in the streets, it is must we highlight him in our special wall of fame !
The French-Suisse artist and his yellow pet became a pleasure for the eyes of many conquering his birthplace Orléans from 1997 and slowly moving between places. His intention mainly focussed on breaking the greyish walls of the city, interrupting the gaze of people passing by and definitely engage a smiley moment with many.
Chris Marker even made a movie/docu (2004) about the political and international changes happening all under the regarding eye of the yellow cat; Chats Perchés.
If you happen to be in Paris, then do pass by the Galerie Brugier-Rigail to celebrate along with M. Chat his 20years of smiley kittins !
