"A classic with a twist, familiar yet distorted. Capturing an artistic sense of serene beauty while filled with a jarring bustling chaos that heightens the senses. It leaves a strong impression, one that evokes surrealism and impressionist styles. This is a place for heavy foot traffic that invites many possibilities, but at a price. Stress. Not all stress, or hustle and bustle, is inherently negative, but for myself as a strongly visual person, most often at this location while delving into my creative depths to create art and watching my surroundings diligently in tandem, the result is often a bold and distorted memory, encapsulating many feelings and senses at once."

This piece was first presented at the 2016 Memorial Day Open House at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

"It is a very touching moment to actually meet the person who wants to have a piece of your artwork be a part of their homes. It's such a good feeling. Artists are always our own hardest critics. Being appreciated that way is truly uplifting."
Kitty Zen is a self-taught multimedia artist and humanitarian advocate based in Boston. As someone who has experienced PTSD, Kitty uses her artwork and gifts of self-expression to stay mindful and outgoing in an ever-expanding, fast-paced and awesome world and universe. Her connection to a larger, universal human experience is key in her life and in her art. She expresses this connection in multidimensional visual elements, dreamy, abstract features, and many works of interpretive imagery influenced by outer space.
Kitty uses her art to support herself, having started selling her art while homeless as a young adult. Kitty has grown into a professional artist, advocate, and activist, choosing to focus on issues of youth and family homelessness as well as harm reduction and prevention.
