This digital artwork entitled KUCING 2021 is inspired by the life of the artist’s twelve cats. This art piece, reflects and tells a story of how the artist lives with all the cats, now for almost 11 years, and still happily counting. This is the artist’s newest and latest addition, in the continuation of the series KUCING, KUCING 49, KUCEN 13:49. The artist, the caretaker of twelve cats, and through decades of experience, a rightfuly self-proclaimed cat behavior expert, Maifarah Ahmad is a Senior Graphic Designer from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Malaysia. Through feats of passion and unyielding effort, Maifarah Ahmad commands expertise in Visual Communication, especially in Graphic Design, Typography, Branding, and Packaging. Born and raised in Ipoh, Perak, artist Maifarah Ahmad was constantly surrounded by the bursts of colors life had to offer. As is the life we live in, sometimes these colors can turn to darkness and dullness; but in this darkness, the artist found joy and comfort in giving care and getting care from these four-legged lovelies: cats. Even in her younger days, Maifarah always had a soft spot for the furry felines, finding their behaviour ever so intriguing; caring for them regardless of consequence, and loving any cat, stray or not, unconditionally.
