75-Year-Old Artist Edits Bushes In Memory Of His Deceased Cat

Losing a pet is one of the most traumatic changes a person can go through in life. The loss of someone you’ve cared about for a long time is a devastating blow. It’s almost as if you’ve lost your own life when you lose a pet. Sadly, you’ve lost a great friend who stood by your side no matter what life threw at you.

Richard Saunders, 75, is a surrealist painter and also he worked at an advertising agency. It’s been five years since his beloved pet cat “Tolly” passed away. Richard, who loved Tolly wholeheartedly, chose a unique way to memorialize his deceased cat. As a way to demonstrate his affection for his cat, the artist chose to create surreal photos that were both shocking and unexpected. These surreal photos were created digitally by substituting real-world plants with cat-shaped bushes. Hundreds of photographs have been created for this project, which has been given the title, “The Topiary Cat.”

According to Richard’s comments to Bored Panda, he began working on this project as a pleasure when his cat was still living. However, he had never intended to carry on the project following Tolly’s passing. However, his 40K Facebook fans pushed him to continue. Richard feels that it assists individuals in dealing with the loss of their own pets once they have passed away.

We at Viraltrendzs were fascinated when looking at these images, and we hope that our readers will feel the same way while reading this post.

A huge cloud topiary in the grounds of an ancient home had captured Richard’s attention and he took photos of it. After that, it dawned to him that he might photograph Tolly in a posture that would be similar to the form of the bushes very easily.

He also said that, with the loss of his cat, the process of making these images has grown more challenging. According to Richard, the pictures have gotten more sophisticated since then requiring several days to complete and custom-made photographs shot just for them.
