Canada’s most recognizable fauna are synonymous with a natural heritage that is an enduring source of pride for Canadians! A timeless symbol of strength, agility and resilience in the wild, the grey wolf is the first of three iconic species featured in a new geometric art-themed series, which combines two distinctive art styles (low poly art and realism) to produce one contemporary design that conveys extraordinary depth and motion.

Designed by Canadian artist Claude Thivierge, the reverse fuses two different art styles—low poly art and a more true-to-life style—for a contemporary take on a classic wilderness icon. On this misty, moonlit night, Canis lupus moves swiftly and silently down a rocky outcrop in Canada’s boreal forest. Bold colour over the engraved relief brings the landscape to life through a wealth of textural details that add a realistic touch to this multi-layered design. The coin’s silver surface is visible within the two engraved wolves, which are comprised of multiple polygon shapes that define the low poly art style. In spite of the straight lines and pointed edges, each shape is carefully positioned to convey the natural curves of the grey wolf’s familiar outline, while various finishing techniques mimic the effect of light and shadows. One wolf’s instinctive leap suddenly creates the illusion of movement, transformation and the “shattering” of boundaries—those of its geometric form, and the reverse image itself—as its depiction artfully transitions.

The grey wolf kicks off a superb new series of wildlife portraits that takes a more contemporary approach to design, by merging a realistic depiction with one based on pure geometry!
