Zoo Portrait : Jacob, the Kodiak brown bear cub
About Jacob, the Kodiak brown bear:
The Kodiak bear is a subspecies of brown bear that lives in Alaska. It is the largest of all the brown bears and, along with the polar bear, is one of the largest existing terrestrial carnivores. Despite its large size, these bears can reach speeds of up to 56 km/h over short distances. They are very graceful swimmers.
Despite being solitary animals, these bears can under certain circumstances live together with others. This happens especially in areas where the food is concentrated: and we know that this species has developed complex communication and social structure to avoid conflict.
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.
