I've been meaning to complement Zaika's almost signature work, these cute smiling cats. We don't normally think of this as "great art". It's "cartoons", it's "decorative", it's "just cute."
But think about that for a bit. Art that makes us feel sorrow, anger, triumph, anxiety ... those we recognize as great art. Pretty pictures of people, places, things, we see as great art. Things that make us feel nothing, but "thought the essential nature of art," and other high-sounding mental processes, we call great art. But something cute, pretty, humorous, cheerful, something that makes us happy ... that's NOT great art???
Zaika's work is not just pretty, cute, entertaining, amusing ... it's skillfully, complexly, unremittingly, unhesitatingly pretty, cute, etc. It "boldly challenges our basic assumptions about art!"
The "Art World" is too full of stodgy, stuff-shirts putting on airs of grandeur to recognize who is really in need of having their prejudices challenged.
Zaika's art is great. It assaults the viewer with sweetness and moves them to a nicer, happier, healthier place and mind.
