Title: Johannes Vermeer, The Kitchen Maid and the Cat
Author: Svetlana Petrova and Zarathustra the Cat (FatCatArt.ru)
Technics – mixed techniques – fine art inkjet digital printing, oil and acrylic painting
A digital image file, created by the artist on computer, is printed on natural canvas for painting using “giclee” technique. We use only natural pigment inks. These inks don’t tend to channel off which provides us with high definition and contrast prints. The colour matter of the inks, has very high rates of fastness and durability, the inks are highly light-resistant (118 years of guarantee).
Size of the digital painting is the same as the original size of the painting used as the basis of the artwork.
After printing the artist finishes the printed canvas manually: using acrylic texture gels and oil colours she recreates brush strokes.
The resulting digital painting seems to be real painting by a master of the past, as if a painter really featured Zarathustra the Cat in it.
This technique looks undistinguishable from the real painting.

Certificate of authenticity:
Each digital painting is unique piece of art: it is finished manually by the artist. Two signatures prove the authenticity of each digital painting:
- Electronic signature and the date of the last update of the file. It is a part of an image file and is printed along with the image. As FatCatArt works are computer collages they are constantly changing: the artist can change details, color appearance, update the original painting image or change the cat’s photo. Thus the date indicates a version of the piece of art, which is important for the art collectors.
- Hand signature of the artist next to electronic one.
