Photographer Snaps Pictures Of His Cats To Make Them Part Of Iconic Movie Posters—And It’s Everything ?

Artist and photographer Jaemy Choong has a style all his own. For years, Choong has been creating East meets West mashups, combining Western pop culture with an Eastern aesthetic.

With his quirky crossovers, Choong has built a sizable following on social media but his latest project just might be his best work yet.

Building on a project he had been doing with friends for years, Choong decided to include cats in his movie poster mashups, and the result is amazing.

Choong captioned this one Purrie Antoinette.

Perhaps the most incredible part of Choong’s work was getting the cats to cooperate.

With results ranging from hilarious to mildly disturbing, it’s easy to see why Choong’s followers love his work.

The Malaysian-based artist grew up learning calligraphy from his Chinese mother and grandmother but developed a love for Western pop culture watching movies and TV from Hollywood. He eventually started experimenting, creating works that fused the two cultures.

Whether it’s calligraphy, linocut printing, or his movie poster mashups, Choong’s pieces incorporate what he calls the “fun, cheeky side of these 2 different cultures.”

And if the cats ever stop cooperating, he already has a backup plan in place.
