Zoo Portrait: Hemede, the donkey
About Hemede, the donkey:
The donkey (or ass) is a domesticated member of the horse family. It has been used as a working animal for over 5000 years and there are more than 40 million donkeys in the world today.
Donkeys have a reputation for stubbornness, but that is attributed to a much stronger sense of self-preservation than other animals. They will not do something they consider to be dangerous to themselves.
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.
