Zoo Portrait : Moses, the lion
About Moses, the lion:
Lions are the only sociable big cats in the animal kingdom. They live in prides with two or three independent males and multiple females with their offspring. These usually consist of ten to fifteen individuals, but they have been seen in groups of up to forty.
There was a time when lions inhabited Europe, the entire continent of Africa, the Middle East, North America and the north of India. Now there are only a few groups in certain areas of Africa and only one isolated group in India. Thirty years ago the population was twice as large as it currently is and forecasts suggest that in 2050 the species will be extinct if we don’t take urgent measures to remedy the situation.
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.
