Zoo Portrait : Ethan, the American bison
About Ethan, the American bison:
Bisons are the largest terrestrial animals in North America. Today there are around 350,000 bison (only 30,000 living in the wild), a shocking number compared to an estimated 80 million in the mid-19th century. Even more shocking is that in 1890 only a herd of around 50 individuals, located in Yellowstone National Park, remained in the wild. The herd in Yellowstone still lives there, as they have done since prehistoric times.
Bisons are continuously on the move, following the seasons and the growth of pastures so as not to exhaust the resources of any one area they inhabit.
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.
