Zoo Portrait: Odette, the Chartreux cat
About Odette, the Chartreux cat:
The Chartreux is a rare breed of domestic cat from France. They are known for their "smile": due to the structure of their heads and their tapered muzzles, they often appear to be smiling. Chartreux are exceptional hunters and are highly prized by farmers.
The mascot of the world's largest jazz festival, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, is a blue Chartreux affectionately named "Ste Cat", after the festival's hub, St Catherine Street.
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.
