Uncaged: The Unbearable Weight of Genius Cat Art

Uncaged: The Unbearable Weight of Genius Cat Art is coming to CatCon October 1-2, 2022 at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA. The art show features seven original pieces of art inspired by actor Nicolas Cage’s friendship with his cat Merlin, a black Maine Coon. The featured art will be available for sale online and in person, and is created by Vanessa Stockard, Danial Ryan, Matt McCarthy, Brian Hoffman, Michael Caines, Brenda Chi, and Laura Keenados.

“Nicolas Cage is an artist’s dream subject—he’s cult, he’s camp, and he DGAF,” says Cat Art Show curator and CatCon founder Susan Michals. “Cats have many of the same characteristics—so why not combine the two and celebrate it on canvas?”
