Zoo Portrait : Hunter, the Tasmanian devil
About Hunter, the Tasmanian devil:
Tasmanian devils are about the size of a small dog , and are very fierce animals, especially when feeding. They have powerful jaws and one of the strongest bites in the animal kingdom; they are even able to crush and eat the bones of their prey. They store fat in their tail and convert it to energy when food gets scarce.
Tasmanian devils spend more time biting each other than any other species on the planet. That is why they are known for their grumpy and short-tempered personality.
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.
