Zoo Portrait: Khulan, the Pallas's cat
About Khulan, the Pallas's cat:
These cats are wild, living across the steppes of Central Asia. They are threatened due to hunting and habitat degradation.
Pallas's cats give birth to fairly large litters of between two to six kittens. This is nature's way of ensuring the species survives: the mortality rate for babies is high, due to the harsh climate of their habitat. Their homes are cozy, however, the young are born in sheltered dens lined with dried vegetation, feathers, and fur.
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.
