About the Author

Svetlana Petrova is an artist, producer, and curator living in St. Petersburg, Russia. She is the founder and director of the International Festival of Animation Arts, “Multivision.” In 2011, she created—an experiment to combine art history and the spirit of LOLcats. Her “famous paintings improved by cats” went viral and became an internet sensation. She adopted her feline coauthor and mews, Zarathustra, when her mother died. Loved and spoiled by Svetlana’s mother, this 8-year-old ginger tabby cat is 10 kilos of pure undisturbed joy, although he is trying to diet.
