I made this painting in for an art exhibition of the Art Of Compassion Project in Beijing, China. The profit of this exhibition is donated to TACN, a volunteer-run charity aimed at improving animal welfare and promoting a healthy and cruelty-free lifestyle worldwide.
When I was in Phnom Penh in Cambodia I saw a very young, emaciated kitten crawling away from me. It was thirsty, hungry and barely crawling on the hot concrete between car lanes and traffic. I had no food, no water, nothing to give to this baby. I knew she probably wouldn't survive the next days and I broke down. I cried all day and left with pain in my heart. Thank god for the amazing people of TACN who courageously take matters in their own hands and change the faith of so many cats and kittens. All living beings are equal.
