Zoo Portrait : Aiperi, the snow leopard
About Aiperi, the snow leopard:
Snow leopards are solitary and elusive animals. They live in mountainous areas where they are camouflaged well by the landscape, and have a huge tail which helps them maintain their balance while chasing prey on rocky terrain. Their tail also helps them stay warm; they wrap it around themselves while they are sleeping.
Snow leopards are the only big cats that don't roar.
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.
