The illustrations merge cats with different types of plants
Cat owners know that felines have an inconstant relationship with household plants, often using the leaves as reluctant toys when bored. malay artist Lim Heng Swee uses this relationship as inspiration for his new series of graphic illustrations entitled Cats and plants. Similar to his other project, Cat landscapes, these minimalist pieces seamlessly merge playful kittens with different natural elements.
While in some rooms the cat takes the form of a cactus, succulent, or pointed-eared leaf, others feature white or black felines interacting directly with the plants in some way. another one. For example, Swee cleverly draws a cat “scratching” the natural shape of the leaf with her claws in an illustration. Another depicts a large houseplant in a pot with a black cat fused with the color and shape of the soil.
As Swee’s compositions are based on simple geometric shapes, he keeps his style equally minimalist and uncluttered. The cats, flowers and leaves are rendered using only the most essential details. This, combined with the limited color palette, allows the brilliance of his ideas to shine unhindered.
