When Ravi Zupa was six years old, he bought a tall stack of old cat calendars at a thrift store for one penny. He plastered two of his walls from floor to ceiling with these photos of cats for many years. Zupa has always loved art —looking at it, being influenced by it, making it, and influencing others with his own creations. He is well-versed in art history, mythology, religion, and the history of a variety of cultures, all of which influence his work as much as the common, mass-produced labels on ordinary products. Zupa has always loved cats and is particularly fond of Brenda, a stray he found in his neighborhood and helped nurse back to health. Over a two-year period, Zupa fed Brenda in his backyard and has been slowly rewarded with her trust and affection.
