When I saw the cover of this month's FLAUNT magazine, I lost my marbles. This colorful cat explosion is my vision of imaginary perfection. I had to know immediately who was behind this masterful kookiness. The cover artist is Hisham Bharoocha. Insight from the article:
"He credits his study of Vipassana, one of India's most ancient meditation techniques, with his ability to communicate and translate both thought and sonic vibration through visual language." And as for his sonic vibrations, he was in the band Lightning Bolt, Black Dice, and currently is concentrating on his solo project: Soft Circle. His music + art makes me want to dance and/or flail my limbs. The swoopie shapes, whimsy color, unexpected surprises.. a delight... and cats are a huge bonus.
This guy gave me a whopping triple-spoon-full-of-sugar dose of next-level inspiration. Major CATalyst to make more art... and to more dearly treasure my Ebay purchase of 12 issues of Cat Fancy from 1989. Thanks Hisham.
