The Art of Braldt Bralds

About Braldt Bralds               Braldt Bralds Original Art

"Even as a kid I loved looking at the details in Old Masters paintings and I believe this has translated itself into my own work . I don't know how not to paint detail. Being that I have this ongoing affection for cats, it was bound to happen that these two interest often would meet in my paintings"     -Braldt Bralds

Braldt Bralds - Six Pack

Artist Braldt Bralds

Braldt Bralds was born in the Netherlands, where he attended the Grafische School in Rotterdam. For a time, an art career was the last thing on his mind. In fact, his only art education consisted of a mechanical drawing class and on-the-job experience as a typesetter in a printing shop. Even so, he eventually fell in love with art and worked very hard to develop his own style.

Soon Bralds was a popular and successful advertising artist in his home country. He spent two months in the summer of 1978 in New York, where his first job was painting a cover for Time magazine. That work gave him a “feeling of good fortune,” so he came to the United States to live. Once he was established in his new home, his fanciful yet realistic style attracted many fans and collectors. more

A Mixed Bag
 

  

Some of Bralds' most beloved works are his fanciful renditions of cats. In addition to the cats in A Mixed Bag, he's included what he calls a Dasch(hund) mouse … or is that two mice?

Kitty Litter

  

This litter of nine lives is sleeping off a busy day spent gathering and assembling their own version of kitty litter. Painted to perfection by our fabled fashioner of felines, Braldt Bralds, you'll find among the colorful tissue and leftover packing peanuts an assortment of other items purr-loined from his previous puss paintings including tissue from Bag Ladies, pearls from Boucat and packing peanuts from Siamese Twins.

Still Life with Three Eggs and Four Pairs

  

Braldt also could not resist a little play on words, giving a light twist to this formal piece. Three of the four “pairs” of the title are not the edible sort. Pictured are two California Spangled Tabbies, one silver, one brown; two Cymrics, one Mackerel Tabby with white, one tuxedo; and two blue Turkish Angoras. The two mice make the forth (and tastiest) pair offered at this table.

Six Pack

  

"I've always had a chuckle about labeling packages "Fragile". It seems to insult the postal gods, and invites a little revenge. But I like happy endings, and the misadventure in this picture's story turns out okay." Arriving in perfectly crafted condition are a Scottish Fold Calico, a Golden Persian, an American Burmese, a Turkish Van, and a Chartreux. Can you guess the breed of the hidden cat?
-Braldt Bralds

Boucat

   

While leafing through a book on Dutch master still lifes, it struck Braldt that in many parts of Europe —including his native Holland—“bouquet” is pronounced “booket.” Always on the prowl for puns, he leaped on the concept of Boucat. The glorious array of cats features a Birman, Oci, Somali, Blue British Shorthair, Red Maine Coon, an American Gray Shorthair and a Snowshoe.
