This large-scale painting of a walking wolf (Lupus Viator) was the first in the series. It was shown for “Fuori Uso” (1993), an annual contemporary art exhibition that takes place in Pescara (Italy).⠀

Curated by Achille Bonito Oliva⠀

The project Lupus Viator (latin: wolf walking) began as a series of monumental painted installations of an ephemeral nature and realised in situ. Later the project continued to evolve over a period of 7 years. It travelled to 7 different countries worldwide. ⠀
Taking into consideration its extensive duration, as well as its territorial movements, from country to country, Lupus Viator can be understood almost like a mythical pilgrimage, which covers the trails and places, where wolves have formerly roamed in abundance, before the species has widely become extinct.
