Minimalist Cat Art on Reddit Will Change the Way You Look at Cats December 20 2017

Believe it or not, cats have long been a great source of artistic inspiration. From Steinlen's iconic Le Chat Noir to Renoir's Child With Cat, cats have inspired artists for generations. That's definitely the case for the trendiest new art form taking over Reddit: Minimalist Cat Art. The category (or subreddit) on Reddit is dedicated to breaking down cats into their basest shape and form. It's bringing back minimalism in a way that only cats can do!
