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.

TheDustyRebel: First, I’m curious to know the origin of City Kitty? Where does the name come from and how did it come to be?

Lmnopi’s portrait of Ta’kaiya Blaney —a 13 year old activist and singer from the Sliammon First Nation, who works to protect indigenous lands worldwide from unsustainable development.
"I feel that as humans, as participants and beings that walk upon this earth, it is our responsibility to help the earth. We all need to take steps towards a clean and healthy future regarding animals, humans, plants, and the various ecosystems. Our earth is our home. Over the past four years I’ve been an advocate for providing better qualities of living in Indigenous First Nations territories, and ending the oppression, racism, and corruption we face from our government and within our community." —Ta’kaiya Blaney
