Zoo Portrait : Liam, the American black bear
About Liam, the American black bear:
Despite being called black bear, the colour of this species ranges from black (blue-black) to brown, light brown and, in rare cases, white. They can easily climb trees and are extremely solitary animals that travel long distances every day.
They are peaceful animals that do not attack humans, not even to defend their offspring, which makes them unlike other bear species, such as the grizzly bear. Black bears prefer to run away or climb a tree.
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.
