The art exhibition by David Oliveira for Galeria 111 features a pack of wild wolves that have been crafted out of wires. While his human creations recently garnered this Portuguese artist a lot of much-deserved attention, these animal sculptures are particularly arresting. This is due as much to the stunning artistic detail put into each sculpture as it is to the way they interact with their immediate surroundings.

Charging down a set of stairs, the wolves in the exhibition by David Oliveira for Galeria 111 appear feral and ferocious, even though their bodies' are essentially nonexistence except for a few sketch-like lines shaped out of galvanized wire. Oliveira says, "Round stairs are great to work with. Besides offering a view from under and above, it's a very dynamic and energetic space. Those wolves move and excite that energy."
