Curated by Humble Arts Foundation co-founder, Jon Feinstein, this exhibition features a selection of photos from an open entry call, and from the 2017 book, “Humble Cats: New Cats in Art Photography”.

Challenging the idea that cat photography lives solely for viral cuteness, Humble Cats is a collection of art ‘legit’ images—ones that push boundaries and break clichés. The exhibition gives an insight into cats’ continued role as photographic muse and shows that they can go deeper and have a longer shelf life than a quickly expiring meme. It’s an opportunity for the high and low brow to join hands and embrace the fluidity of our feline friends.


We originally developed Weruva, a luxurious, natural pet food, for our three rescued cats, Webster, Rudi and Vanessa, after searching for the best cat food under the sun. When the best wasn’t good enough, we sourced quality ingredients, developed some fantastic recipes, and created it ourselves. Naturally, when we were lucky enough to have our rescued dog Baron enter our family, we decided to expand our products to include dog food.

Our pet food is produced in a human food facility using many of the ingredients and processes used in products made for people. Base proteins include top-quality muscle meat like white breast chicken, whole tuna loins and select cuts of beef. Then we add fresh vegetables and other unique ingredients like grilled skipjack, tilapia and red bigeye tuna, as well as calamari and shirasu. Our ingredients maintain a natural look and recognizable texture which allows you (and us!) to see and understand the ingredients, so what you see is what you get!

We hope your furry friends love Weruva as much as Webster, Rudi, Vanessa and Baron do!
