Zoo Portrait : Cesar, the black panther
About Cesar, the black panther:
The black panther is not a species in itself. Black panthers are leopards, jaguars or cougars, with a melanistic variation that makes them look black. They are extremely difficult to see, not only because of their excellent camouflage in dark dense rainforest areas, but also because they come out to hunt mainly at night.
During the day panthers can be found lounging on tree branches, resting.
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.
