Zoo Portrait: Cora, the sphynx cat
About Cora, the sphynx cat:
Although hairless cats have been reported throughout history, the sphynx breed was developed by cat breeders in Europe in the 1960s.
Due to their hairlessness, these cats lose body heat more easily than others and so can't be outside for long. They also can exhibit symptoms of sunburn and skin damage if they spend too much time outside in hot weather.
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.
