See the Latest Art Called Superhuman by Catman in Whitstable
Catman is an award-winning graffiti artist whose thought-provoking works are regularly compared to Banksy. His art can be seen on the streets of Whitstable in Kent and they are much photographed by visitors to this seaside town.
New Catman Street Art Added April 2020
At the beginning of April 2020, Catman added the piece named Superhuman to show appreciation to health care workers devoting their time to sick patients during the Coronavirus pandemic. The street art shows an exhausted doctor wearing a white coat with a stethoscope slung around his neck. Look closely at the doctor's shadow - it reveals a superhero's cape gently flapping in the breeze.
The morning after creating his latest piece of art, Catman posted the news on his Instagram page letting everyone know why he had created the piece. It's a moving tribute to the key workers who put themselves at risk to care for the sick.
His Instagram message:
catman_artist Superhuman' - whilst the town was asleep during isolation last night, I snuck out and painted this. Dedicated to all of the superhuman frontline staff out there working tirelessly to keep us and our loved ones safe and well #Superhuman #NHS #streetart #stencilart #whitstable #staysafe #isolation #lockdown #spraypaintart #catman_artist #superhero
Catman sprayed his latest street art next to one he had previously created called The Hourglass. Both are painted on the side of a charity shop on Whitstable high street. The graffiti can be found on the wall on Terrys Lane, opposite The Duke Of Cumberland pub.
