ABOUT THIS ART
"One night while in the studio with my friend Rime we were talking about ideas how I could let people know that I had made the move cross country from my home city of San Diego to New York. He just blurted out, how about painting on MTA cards?

I've seen the cards sprawled all over the floor of the subway stations. Everyday I ride the train it has become a scavenger hunt to see how many cards I could find. Some days I find 1 or 2. Some days I can find 10. And some days you strike out and don't find any. I even have friends collecting them off the floor of the subways for me. It's just a brilliant idea. It's a sustainable approach to art." - Persue

ABOUT THE ARTIST

In 2001, the established graphic designer, illustrator and graffiti artist “Persue” created a character that combined two of the world’s most universally adored animals: bunnies and kitties. His beloved character BunnyKitty is an undeniably cute yet spunky kitten dressed in a magical bunny suit. In an effort to put a positive spin on graffiti, which faced an onslaught of negative press in the 90’s and early 2000’s, Persue painted this character on walls the world over. What started out as a fun side project to help make aerosol art more palatable to the general public, snowballed into something else entirely.

In 2006, Persue wrote the origins of BunnyKitty, a classic story of a hero with a heart of gold, a love for adventure, and a slightly darker mischievous side. From his imagination sprung to life an entire universe where BunnyKitty must be brave, rise to the occasion and push herself to her greatest potential. Persue’s mother also played a crucial role, editing the story and writing the magical spell that equips BunnyKitty with her powers. Sadly, shortly after The Origins of BunnyKitty was written, Persue’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This tragic news, along with other challenges he faced in his life at the time forced him to immediately put a halt to his dream of sharing the story they wrote together with his growing audience. It wasn’t until 2012 that he revisited the idea of sharing BunnyKitty’s story. The timing ended up being perfect, as he moved to New York City to work on the illustrations for the book which is due to drop early in fall of 2015 with 1xRUN. BunnyKitty’s journey from the countryside to the Big City reflects his own, and after nearly 8 years of waiting, Persue is finally releasing this heartwarming story to his fans, and the world.
