Zoo Portrait: Azat, the dhole
About Azat, the dhole:
The dhole is a wild dog native to Central, South and Southeast Asia. It is a very sociable creature, living in large clans of up to 40 individuals.
It is currently endangered as its population is decreasing; due to habitat loss, loss of prey, competition with other species, persecution due to livestock predation and disease transfer from domestic dogs. A combination we see all too often in the animal kingdom, sadly.
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.
