Zoo Portrait : Matheus, the black and white hawk-eagle
About Matheus, the black and white hawk-eagle:
Black and white hawk-eagles are found in all parts of tropical America, from as far north as Mexico to the forests of Argentina. They live mainly on the edges of forests, close to the open areas, where they can see their prey well.
Little is known about the species, other than that the distinctive black "masks" around their eyes improve their sight by preventing sun reflection. They are believed to lay eggs about once every 2-3 years and the male provides food for the female during the incubation period.
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.
