Wolf Lupa

The she wolf Lupa discovered Romulus and Remus and suckled them in their infancy.

The forms that Paul and Mark create simultaneously are ‘animistic’ possessing the spirit of the animal or entity as well as being layered by the tropes that have been the allegories of the ages. The narrative and symbolic relevance of the mythologies is to an extent subverted and distilled to align with the zeitgeist of contemporary culture.

By abstracting the natural forms to planes and surfaces that are more akin to low polygon models distils the essence and notions to an archetype than a particular thing.
