Celebrate Our Feline Friends with Artistic Expressions of Cats

Welcome to Bodega Cats of New York, where timeless art meets feline charm. Initiated by our founders Dan Rimada and Daniel Mulé, in 2020, our brand is a tribute to the unsung heroes of NYC's local corner stores - the bodega cats.

Our creative journey is a fusion of modern technology and traditional artistry. We utilize a diverse array of tools including Procreate, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, along with innovative AI art tools like Dall-E and Midjourney. Furthermore, we continually seek collaborations with artists we encounter at art shows, enriching our work with their unique perspectives and techniques. This blend of technology, artistic inspiration, and collaborative spirit enables us to create distinctive and captivating pieces.

More than just art, our pieces celebrate a shared love for cats and their unique charm. Every piece we create has the potential to spark joy, initiate conversations, and help you feel closer to the feline world. As we continually refine our craft and draw inspiration from the world around us, our aim is to bring a smile to the face of every art and cat lover out there.
