|An Artist who has spent five years studying cats has had his work chosen to represent a major international art exhibition.
John Kimpton's cat design will be the logo for 'Art of the Cat', which is due to take place in Paris this September.
John's cat design was selected from over 1,000 entries worldwide, including some from internationally known artists and designers. The design was taken from one of the many sketches of the domestic cat produced by the artist over the past 5 years.
"I am really thrilled and pleased with this news", said John.
More of John's cat studies have also reached the final selection stage to be on show in the exhibition, which represents some of the best internationally known artists and their interpretations of the domestic cat.
John has submitted 30 pieces and, if they are chosen, they will be on show alongside work from artists from as far away as Scandinavia.
John will be expected to fly out for the event, during which his will will be on show in a Paris chateau and viewed by the King of Spain, Juan Carlos.
