Sometimes we, as an international art center with our serious attitude towards our work, towards artists, towards current trends in the art market and art history... just want to be a little freaky. Therefore, we decided to present our completely special and frivolous collection of CATS. You can love cats or not, but you cannot be indifferent to them.

All cats are different, they settle in our house and instantly take a royal place. Therefore, why not draw a cat?

We went to several artists with this unusual initiative, and got a very nice result. Introducing our first online exhibition "Cats". You can see these paintings in our gallery in Funchal, Madeira.

Not all paintings presented here are available for purchase. But paintings can be painted to order, based on a photograph of your pet (and not only a cat, but also dogs, parrots and even fish). It is enough to write us a request and we will contact you immediately.



Cats collection by Irina Tarasova


Irina was born in Ukraine (Dnipro) in 1977. After she moved to Portugal in 2000, Irina began to paint and radically changed her life with the help of art. First self-taught, then graduated at Ilustração e Produção Grafica Escola Superior de Arte e Design, Caldas de Rainha. She experiments with different techniques and styles. At the moment, the main characters of her paintings are animals in different images. A great opportunity to capture your pet forever. All of her paintings are exclusive and distinguished by their unique style that impresses clients from all over the world. Our gallery has been successfully cooperating with Irina for a long time.

The artist uses a mix technique that includes collage, gouache and acrylic paints. Also she transforms old book pages into paintings. That helps to give anothere life for books that were planned to be thrown away.

Cats choose us, we don’t own them.”
