Zoo Portrait : Evie, the red fox
About Evie, the red fox:
Foxes have the largest distribution of any terrestrial carnivore. Thanks to their acute sense of hearing, they can hear low frequency sounds and even detect rodents burrowing underground. Even with a full stomach, these animals keep hunting and they can even hide their prey to eat it afterwards.
In Japan the fox (kitsune – 狐) is a sacred animal. According to mythology, it is an intelligent being that possesses magical abilities.
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.
