Aya Kakeda, an artist who was born and raised in Tokyo but now resides in Brooklyn, let us know that today (2/22) is Cat Day in Japan. According to Aya, this holiday comes from a cat’s “mewing” sound in Japanese which is “nyan nyan nyan” and sounds similar to “2 2 2”. Aya’s been involved with several shows at mph, including and the show currently on display, Fonzo Love NY.
