Zoo Portrait : Diego, the Peruvian night monkey
About Diego, the Peruvian night monkey:
As the name suggests, these monkeys are nocturnal. They are most active around the hours of dawn and dusk, and because of their nocturnal life, their vision is monochromatic (they cannot distinguish colours). The colour of their fur ranges from grey to shades of brown, but they have a characteristic bright orange chest that distinguishes them from other nocturnal monkeys.
Night monkeys spend their lives in trees without ever descending to the ground.
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.
