Zoo Portrait : Chang, the red panda
About Chang, the red panda:
Despite its name, the red panda is not related to the giant panda. They are actually genetically closer to raccoons, skunks and mustelids. However, like the giant panda, their diet exists mainly of bamboo. The red panda is endangered due to habitat loss and despite efforts to protect them, their population in the wild keeps decreasing.
The red panda is one of the few animals in the world able to distinguish artificial sweet flavours from natural ones.
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.
