Zoo Portrait : Alek, the Atlantic puffin
About Alek, the Atlantic puffin:
Puffins spend most of their life alone on the sea, resting on the waves. They are excellent swimmers and divers, effectively using their wings for propulsion underwater. During the breeding season, they come back to coastal areas to mate. Puffins have a brightly coloured beak that turns dull grey in the Winter. The colours bloom again in the Spring, to attract potential mates for breeding.
These birds mate for life and are totally monogamous.
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.
