Zoo Portrait: Hubert, the labrador retriever
About Hubert, the labrador retriever:
Labradors have a gentle, playful nature and as such, make very popular pets. They need to be kept active, as they were initially bred from gundogs. Their ability to follow a scent makes them excellent police dogs as well as guide dogs for the blind.
Labradors are highly intelligent animals and can take the initiative for themselves as well as follow instructions. These dogs have been trained to do all sorts of things: one can place his wheelchair-bound human in the recovery position, cover him with a blanket and activate an emergency phone. Others can actually remove money and credit cards from cash machines to assist their owner.
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.
