Wire Wolves Running Down Stairs

Though we just discovered the incredible work of David Oliveira a few weeks ago, I felt compelled to put up another post after seeing his latest pieces. Currently showing at Galeria 111 in Portugal (until July 31) are some of Oliveria's amazing suspended wire sculptures including a pack of wild wolves that look as if they're running down a flight of stairs. Oliveira uses invisible filament to create the illusion that his pieces are floating or, in this case, moving.

Oliveira tells us that the motivation behind the installation was “the space.”

“Round stairs are great to work with. Besides offering a view from under and above, it's a very dynamic and energetic space,” he says. “Those wolves move and excite that energy.”
