About The Artwork

This is an observation of a gradual artistic fusion taking place globally. The lines are blurred, and there is an acceptance and embracing of diversity, if you like craving for “that” which is new. Hence the above piece of work. Even African parents accept “Cat Work “as a career path for their children now.
