We’re big fans of Yago Partal’s work. We’re suckers for an anthropomorphic animal depiction and they don’t get much more personable than the Spanish artist’s Zoo Portraits project. Partal was responsible for a particularly foxy Time Out cover design earlier this year and his work featured in our ad campaign for the Time Out Glasgow launch. He has now added more than 50 species to his kooky collection. In the run-up to Christmas he’s staging an exhibition and pop-up shop selling limited edition art, prints and homeware at Columbia Road Arts Club, a boon if you’re looking for a present for a friend who’s a cuddly bear or a bit of a monkey. Or you could just be a complete piggy and indulge yourself instead.
Zoo Portraits London Pop-Up, Columbia Road Arts Club, 160 Columbia Rd, E2 7RG. Until Dec 21. Wed 10am-9pm; Thu-Sat 10am-7pm; Sun 10am-5pm.
