Zoo Portrait : Abby, the British shorthair cat
About Abby, the British shorthair cat:
This cat is probably one of the oldest cat breeds in Great Britain. Its ancestors were brought to the islands by the Romans, more than 2,000 years ago. They are known for their hunting skills and excellent adaptation to both wild and domestic environments. They are affectionate, usually like being petted, and hardly ever scratch.
Cats' tongues are unable to taste sweet flavours.
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.
