The ‘Wolves in Wolves’ trail was launched on 5th July with 30 individually decorated ‘wolf’ sculptures situated at different locations across Wolverhampton – the largest public art event which has taken place in the city.
Sophie Casewell, 22 from Walsall, decorated the wolf with Visual Communication, Artist in residence Joshua Grice, using designs created by a group of students in a collaborative workshop. HUNTER was created using black acrylic paint rather than colour and Sophie wanted to challenge herself by limiting the materials used to create interesting patterns and lines.
She said: “My starting point for this project was a collaboration piece that was made by some students when we worked with artists, Le Gun, on a project. HUNTER is an exploration of creativity and seeing how looking at one idea can evolve into another. Because it was a collaborative project I related to wolves working together in packs hence the name.
“It’s an amazing feeling to see something you’ve worked so hard on out in the public and it’s great to see people looking for and reacting to the wolves. I’ve seen a few selfies with HUNTER and the feeling is incredible.”
