Zoo Portrait : Mishka, the Bengal tiger
About Mishka, the Bengal tiger:
Bengal tigers are the largest felines in the world, and very aggressive. It is estimated that 20% of tigers in the wild die fighting other tigers. They are also very strong and can reach speeds of 75 km/h when chasing their prey.
The stripe pattern is unique in each tiger so, like fingerprints, no two individuals are exactly the same. And this pattern is not just visible on the fur: if you were brave enough to shave them, you would find it on their skin too.
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.
