About the artwork
'Emi' is a high quality print of a massive work in graffiti by Tito Ferrara painted on the side of a building in Sao Paulo, Brazil. EMI, the name of the cat depicted, is being held by a veterinarian. This was produced as part of a campaign to encourage people to take their cats to the veterinarian for periodic check-ups to ensure that their animals remain healthy. Tito referenced this particular cat as Emi was his own family's cat. This painting was completed during the pandemic and because of the loneliness suffered by many people due to being forced to stay at home, the number of cats owned by Brazilians increased by 30%. Cats are very good companions when you are forced to stay at home!
Tito Ferrara painted the veterinarian and EMI looking directly at the city to create an immediate connection with the viewer and encourage increased awareness of the subject. Above all, Tito's work is based on storytelling through engaging and intimate portraits.
