Zoo Portrait : Edwin, the emperor tamarin
About Edwin, the emperor tamarin:
This species of tamarin gets its name from its resemblance to the German emperor Wilhelm II. It started as a joke, but ended up becoming its official name. Emperor tamarins live in troops of between 2 and 8 members. Although they tend to have a higher number of males, they are led by the eldest female.
They are very active and sociable animals. They love to be stroked and to play with each other.
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.
