Zoo Portrait : Sammy, the common ostrich
About Sammy, the common ostrich:
Ostriches cannot fly; they are the world's largest and heaviest birds. They are however, the world's fastest two-legged animal and the third fastest of all species, after the cheetah and the pronghorn antelope. Ostriches can maintain a speed of 70 km/h for up to 30 minutes without stopping.
The egg of an ostrich weighs 1-2 kg and is equal in size to approximately 24 chicken eggs.
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.
