Do you love animals? Well, hello there! Yago Partal’s “Zoo Portraits” can definitely tickle you pink. The graphic artist from Barcelona brings so much fun in photo manipulation. It’s wonderful how he made this clever idea happen. Right now, it’s one of the most-liked photo series among art sites online. Who can even ignore exotic animals in the fanciest clothing?
Is Photo manipulation your thing? What are your current themes and creative ideas? If you look into these wonderful animal portraits, you will not only get inspired but get amused. We all know about the many issues concerning our animals, and this photo series is a unique way of seeing through them.
My favorite is the koala in Aloha shirt. It reminds me of people radiating sunshine. It also reminds me of my life in the islands. The fashion picks of the artist is also commendable – he’s able to bring out that edge in every animal. I can only imagine the fun experience while shooting. I so love the various styles, the ‘attitude’ being unfolded.
After the initial phase of his creative pursuit, he decided to put the design and illustration aside to focus exclusively on photography and video. He taught in a makeup school for one year and then opened his own studio while continuing to work on his own series.
As a young artist, he is truly an inspiration to me. I also wish that he adds up to the colors of the mundane.
