About Awax, the western lowland gorilla:

Lowland gorillas live in communities of around 30 individuals (a troop). These groups are led by a dominant older male, often called a “silverback” because of the area of grey hair on its back and rump. He organises the troop when it is time to eat, and protects them with great ferocity from external threats. Gorillas are highly intelligent animals and in captivity have even learned to communicate using simple human sign language.

Lowland gorillas are critically endangered, due to a combination of habitat destruction and poaching. 

 

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.
