Kazuaki ‘Horitomo’ Kitamura is a Japanese artist and tattooist who combines cat motifs with traditional Japanese imagery to create Monmon Cats (Monmon is slang for “tattoo” in Japanese).
Monmon Cats was born out of a combination of Horitomo’s two great passions in life – tattoos and cats, “I feel that painting and drawing cats lets me borrow the cat’s powers”.
The hardcover Monmon Cats book features a curated selection of Horitomo’s work printed in vivid colour, accompanied by detailed insights into the meanings of the traditional imagery used.
Size: 13.5cm x 18.5cm
Also available from the Monmon Cats range is the Tebori Cats T-shirt and Sticker, the Fish Bowl Sticker, the Dia de Los Muertos Cat Sticker, Lemon and Vanilla Air Fresheners and the Monmon Cats Button Pack.
