Zoo Portrait: Samuel, the white-nosed coati
About Samuel, the white-nosed coati:
White-nosed coatis are a subspecies of the raccoon family and are native to North, Central and South America. They live in forest environments and can be found at any altitude.
Coatis don't tend to be nocturnal; they sleep in trees and descend each day to search for food. They can adapt their habits easily, however, as a result of a perceived threat like being hunted by humans.
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.
