DOTTIE (JUMPING CATS)
Photographer Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek knows how to translate humour into authentic and unpolished pictures. Currently based between Berlin and Vienna, he toys with the absurdity of everyday life using his highly acclaimed talent for the good, the bad, and the ugly. He is best known for his viral art series "Doggystyle", "Jumping Cats", and "Better Living With Alpacas". Koekkoek was called "the art world's Dr. Doolitle" by It's Nice That. With his roots in Tyrol, Austria, he moved to New York in 2008 to learn at Magnum Photos. Since then, he has released award-winning art publications and exhibited throughout Europe, Asia, and the US.
It is often said that curiosity killed the cat, yet an equally enduring notion suggests that cats possess nine lives. According to a theory put forth by ‘catisticians’ the inherent perils of a cat's curiosity led them to conclude that nine lives would be a far more efficient proposition than just one. This arrangement granted them the freedom they so ardently craved, along with ample time to luxuriate in snug corners, exude an air of bemusement, nap atop pristine piles of laundry, wear an air of apathy, explore the great outdoors, pounce on any moving object, cast disapproving glances, and even exhibit a curious fear of cucumbers. Once cats seemingly mastered the art of putting mortality on ‘paws’, they were liberated to approach life with the unique blend of gusto, agility, courage, and occasional recklessness that only cats can manifest. In his photographic work, Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek endeavors to capture the aerial acrobatics of these remarkable creatures, introducing his images of Ume, Elli, Flitzie, Nevio, and Fiffy to the world. Now, you can relish one of the photos from this series, beautifully displayed on your wall.
Each edition comes hand-signed by the artist via a numbered and signed Certificate of Authenticity on the back of the print.
