I am Colin Hurley. I am a illustrator in Berkeley. My idea, "The Painter of Cats", is a riff on the artist, Thomas Kinkade, whose brand was called "The Painter of Light". I'm currently represented by the gallery, Makers Paradise, which is in downtown Berkeley, California, and Firehouse Art Collective, based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I've been in over a dozen art shows, many I have curated. Articles in publications such as W Magazine, Out Magazine, and New York Style Guide have mentioned my name and photos in regards to various art projects I've been a part of. I was one of the lead artists in a mural project on Wardenclyffe Homes condominium in Oakland. My most popular art shows have been a series of celebrations of cats. They are searchable online, and go by the names, "Let's Hear It For The Cat!", "the cat pARTy", "Feline Trouble" and "Haunted By A Cat".
