It's that time of the year when the cats of CatmaSutra come out to play! Bright, quirky, and capable of levitation, the seventh installation of catmaSuta cat art exhibition is once again back at Utterly Art. 


 The seven year itch has only served to cook up more mischief as the catmaSutra cat takes you to that sweet spot of whimsical bliss and light-heartedness.

  "If we stop and observe how life flows, we'll notice how the universe is made up of individual moments which when appreciated fully, gains a shape akin to a smile from the heart - a personal heaven."


Paul's paintings take his audience through these moments using the cat as the perfect allegory to create a personal space that tugs at the heartstrings!

Come check out some of the available catmaSutra collectibles and smile-getters (2012 catmaSutra calendar cards, tile coasters and keepsake boxes), the purr-fect gifts this festive season.

Cat Monologue

Went down to buy coffee. Was trying to hear myself amidst the noise, listening to voices inside as I stroll through a thin mist of rain. There are two voices talking, one is from my heart. I always hear that first, and then a second voice which is not entirely mine but seems cocksure and as usual, pretty loud. But if you hear deeply enough, it is loud because it is insecure and doesn't want to lose out in any way. Insecurity and fear - they are best friends, almost inseparable. I bought the coffee and saw the cat that I knew; he has been sleeping next to my bike the last few evenings. He was now asleep on a chair tucked underneath the safety of a kopitiam table. I pulled a chair next to him, made eye contact and started patting him. he's a good natured cat and began to flip for me. I pat him on the head, his chin, rubbed his face and letting him rest his head on my palm while he purred away blissfully. The heart seemed settled and quiet - pure and simple. This voice became loud and clear. And when I turned to walk away, the cat sat up wondering where I'm going. Half way across the road I looked back and he was still looking at me.

I went back later and took a photograph of him. He had changed seats but still sleeping tightly seemingly without a care in the world...

These are stories in the rain

“When it's raining like this," said Naoko, "it feels as if we're the only ones in the world.  

“Thanks to the long days of rain,
the blades of grass glowed with a deep-green luster, and
they gave off the smell of wildness unique to things
that sink their roots into the earth.” 
Haruki Murakami

 A play on Jamie Beck “cinemagraphs:… totoro and halo in the rain.. 

“There are a hundred things she has tried to chase away the things she won't remember and that she can't even let herself think about because that's when the birds scream and the worms crawl and somewhere in her mind it's always raining a slow and endless drizzle.

You will hear that she has left the country, that there was a gift she wanted you to have, but it is lost before it reaches you. Late one night the telephone will sign, and a voice that might be hers will say something that you cannot interpret before the connection crackles and is broken.

Several years later, from a taxi, you will see someone in a doorway who looks like her, but she will be gone by the time you persuade the driver to stop. You will never see her again.
Whenever it rains you will think of her. ”
~ Neil Gaiman

 catmasutra cat art: In-between Love

“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen...”
~ Ernest Hemingway

“People always think that happiness is a faraway thing,
something complicated and hard to get.
Yet, what little things can make it up; a place of shelter
when it rains - a cup of strong hot coffee
when you're blue; for a man,
a cigarette for contentment;
a book to read when you're alone -
just to be with someone you love.
Those things make happiness.”
~ Betty Smith


Moving on...

Tired. Thought I listen to a piece of music before I turned off the power, pull the plug. Goodbye day. May I be released from your chains into something more comfortable. Music. The whizzing sound of fans like turbos of a flying machine. I’ve come crashing down, into the arms of your royal darkness. Hello Night.

Will be updating this blog on Tumblr: http://catmasutra.tumblr.com/


Hidden dreams and quirky cat impressions!

Beauty surrounds us,
but usually we need to be walking
in a garden to know it.

The body itself is a screen
to shield and partially reveal
the light that's blazing
inside your presence.

Water, stories, the body
all the things we do, are mediums
that hide and show what's hidden.

Study them,
and enjoy this being washed
with a secret we sometimes know,
and then not.

Joker Cat is in town - The Quirkiest cat art iPhone cat cover!

"There is always a Joker to see through the delusion.
Generation succeeds generation, but there is a
fool walking the earth who is never ravaged by time."

"Our lives are part of a unique adventure...
Nevertheless, most of us think the world is 'normal'...
But that is just because we don't realize the world is a mystery. 
As for myself, I felt completely different. 
I saw the world as an amazing dream. 
I was hunting for some kind of explanation of how 
everything fit together."

"A joker is a little fool who is different from everyone else. 
He's not a club, diamond, heart, or spade. 
He's not an eight or a nine, a king or a jack. 
He is an outsider. He is placed in the same pack as 
the other cards, but he doesn't belong there... 
It is different for the Joker, 
because he was put into this world with 
a flaw: He sees too clearly and too much."
