Zoo Portrait : Ram, the golden tiger
About Ram, the golden tiger:
Golden tigers are not a separate species, but a tiger with a colour variation caused by a recessive gene. They are often called "strawberry tigers" as the colour of their fur has a strawberry hue.
The recessive gene that makes them golden also has an effect on the hair shaft, meaning that their hair is softer than other tigers.
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.
