Artist Envisions ‘Cat Landscapes’, Drawing Smiles From Fans

Cat lovers look for kitties wherever they go, and sometimes, they wind up seeing cats everywhere.

Malaysian artist, Lim Heng Swee, is one such feline fancier and his cat-tuned vision has inspired a series of minimalist landscapes featuring cats, titled simply Cat Landscapes. As it turns out, the fluid physique of a cat shapes well with the natural world. In fact, Lim noticed this pretty much right off in his foray into landscape art.

In a piece for Bored Panda, Lim explained, “Recently, I started to explore minimal landscape art and found that the curves and shapes of the land have a lot of similarities with the curve and shape of the cat. I tried to blend the two elements together and the result is surprisingly great. It’s like the surreal view you can see if you landed into a cat planet which is super cool!”

Indeed, the series is super cool and just one of Lim’s many “doodles”.

Just a few months into his career as an engineer, Lim Heng Swee “aka ilovedoodle” knew he wasn’t working in the right field. He quit and turned to art, now working as a successful illustrator and graphic designer. As his website states, “His mantra is ‘Doodling A Smile’, aiming to make people smile more in their everyday lives.”

And Lim’s series, Cat Landscapes, definitely creates smiles.

Lim’s pieces are minimal, but the impact is maximum…
