Del Conca celebrated Felix the Cat at Cersaie with two collections dedicated to the international pop icon. Created by Otto Messmer and Joe Oriolo, Felix The Cat made his on screen debut in 1919. As the first cartoon in the history of cinema to be animated, Felix is considered a pop icon. Happy, sullen, thoughtful, ironic and light-hearted, #Felix the Cat comes to life with Del Conca illustrations in an irreverent and contagious way. The ceramic tile collection consists of two decorations: A vintage tribute entitled “#Remember Felix”, where every piece tells a story and captures the nostalgic charm that has entranced Felix’s audience for a century. Each image reminds us of his ingenuity and do-it-yourself resourcefulness that has inspired generations of fans.
The second tribute entitled, “#The Cat is Back”, conquers his signature looks with a contemporary pop-inspired flair. In this tribute, Felix’s personality comes to life as he hides and reappears in the next illustration more mischievous than ever. This rendition of Felix would not be complete without his iconic magic bag that shows off how he ingeniously pulls off all of his adventures and makes his trademark appearance, as well as the classic wide range of emotions and expressions as he speaks, thinks, sings, laughs and whistles with such enthusiasm and charisma.
