Did you know that as early as the 1870s, British portrait photographer Harry Pointer created a Carte de Visite series featuring felines posed in various situations, to which he added amusing text intended to further enhance their appeal?

It seems our appetite for these images – funny, fascinating, and often downright bizarre – has always been insatiable. But what do these memes say about us? And can we take the LOLCAT phenomenon and elevate it to the level of genuine art?

We’ve brought together an array of cool cats and witty kitties – including graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, animators, and writers. Ignoring the crudely makeshift LOLCAT aesthetic, each of these artists has come up with their unique take on the theme to create a piece of beautiful, amusing and exquisitely crafted LOLCAT art.

The exhibition takes place at The Framers Gallery and 50% of all proceeds are in aid of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home

Curator: Jenny Theolin / Soapbox & Sons
Host: The Framers Gallery
