City Kitty is a New York-based Street Artist who creates unique, one of a kind pieces, often featuring the cats he’s become so well known for. He’s amazingly prolific for an artist whose work is all hand-done, rather than relying on prints.Over the years, I’ve often been asked about City City, and recently I went over to this elusive artist’s studio to learn more about his process. While I photographed him working on one of his large-scale pieces—as well as our collaboration for the Murder Lounge’s Downtown Denim show—we talked about his perspective and the origins of City Kitty.
