Zoo Portrait : Colton, the grey wolf
About Colton, the grey wolf:
Wolves used to be one of the most populous species on the planet, but with the development of humans their population has been reduced by about one third. They are pack animals, hunting in packs of 4-7 members. They communicate with each other by howling, barking or growling, as well as with their body language.
Baby wolves are born blind and defenceless, and are protected by the pack until they are about ten months old.
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.
