Enamel Pins by Nia Gould Reimagine Famous Artists as Cats

February 1, 2018

When creative design manager Nia Gould isn’t busy running an arts venue, she dreams up ninth lives for famed artists from throughout history. A declared feline fan herself, Gould reimagines painters like Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keefe, and Jean-Michel Basquiat as creative cats. She includes iconic elements of the artists’ personality and painting styles in each pin, like Kahlo’s flower crowns, van Gogh’s lopped-off ear, and Dali’s over-the-top mustache and look of perpetual surprise. Artist Cat Pins are available in The Colossal Shop.
