One of artist Bradley Theodore’s recent street art additions to the downtown New York CIty landscape is this diminutive full-body skeletal portrait of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld and his Birman cat Choupette. The iconic Lagerfeld, currently serving as creative director for Chanel, has made many public appearances with Choupette that the kitty herself has become something of a fashion icon. The painting can be found outside L’Asso, a pizza joint on Mott Street in Nolita, and continues Theodore’s series of portraits depicting various celebrities from the fashion world.
