Zoo Portrait : Camilo, the red-eyed tree frog
About Camilo, the red-eyed tree frog:
Tree-frogs are beautiful, brightly coloured animals. They use these colours as a defence mechanism: the green of their skin is difficult for nocturnal predators to see, and their startling eyes make predators hesitate before attacking, allowing them to escape.
They have very good night vision, and suction cups on their toes to allow them to attach to flat surfaces like leaves with ease.
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.
