Zoo Portrait : Kiady, the crowned lemur
About Kiady, the crowned lemur:
The crowned lemur is one of seventy-five different species of lemur endemic to the island of Madagascar. Lemurs have a basal metabolic rate, which means their bodies use only the amount of energy that is strictly necessary for their cells to survive. This allows them to get through the dry seasons, when food and water are scarce.
Crowned lemurs are social animals that live in groups during the day, led by a female. They get their name from the distinctive orange fur around their face, like a crown.
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.
