Zoo Portrait: Wenny, the red-tailed monkey
About Wenny, the red-tailed monkey:
The red-tailed monkey is found across Africa and can survive in different conditions and habitats. Despite this, it is endangered due to deforestation and hunting.
These monkeys are known to tap each other on the nose as a sign of affection, and can store a large amount of food in the pouches of their cheeks. They do this while foraging, and then find a safe place to eat their haul in peace.
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.
