About Alfie, the little owl:

Little owls are mainly nocturnal, even though it is not unusual to see them during the day too. They stay perched motionless on posts, fences and trees, always in open spaces, on the look-out for prey. Owls have stereoscopic vision which allows them to focus on their prey and estimate the distance from it. In order to pinpoint the distance more accurately, they make odd head movements to get the maximum number of angles possible.

Little owls are monogamous birds and they tend to remain in the same territory all their lives.

 

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.

These adorable animals have been featured by Another Magazine, The Huffington PostCBS News and the Wall Street Journal, among others.

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 kitty@subjectmatterart.com.
