Zoo Portrait : Abakar, the caracal
About Abakar, the caracal:
Caracals are nocturnal, feline animals that hunt after sunset and prefer to hide among rocks during the day. Their large, highly mobile ears can be flipped in any direction to determine the source of a sound, to locate prey or to detect danger. Caracals can jump in the air up to three metres, which allows them to catch prey even when they have started to fly away.
In Ancient Egypt, they were treated as domestic animals because they adapted easily to humans.
About Yago, the artist:
Yago Partal (b. 1982, Barcelona) lives and works in Barcelona.
He creates his anthropomorphic images through a painstaking combination of photography, illustration and collage. His intention (in humanising animals) is to make us look again, to see them as "one of us" and not something to be exploited or endangered.
Yago has returned to university to study his passion, zoology. The sales from the Zoo Portraits have enabled him to support a number of wildlife charities over the years, and to work with children to educate the next generation about animal conservation.
Yago Partal is represented by Subject Matter Art, an online fine art gallery based in London. For any questions about his work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
