Zoo Portrait : Peter, the red kangaroo
About Peter, the red kangaroo:
The red kangaroo is the largest of all kangaroo species. They use their stronger hind legs to jump and can cover a distance of up to seven metres in just one jump; they can reach a speed of 60 km/h through jumping.
They are the only large animal that moves by hopping. Interestingly, they cannot jump backwards and it is also very difficult for them to walk slowly.
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.
