Organic Wooden Sculptures by Henrique Oliveira

Written by

 

Hailing from São Paulo, Brazil, Henrique Oliveira is an award-winning artist that has exhibited his work around the world. Born in 1973, Oliveira received his BFA and Masters in Visual Poetics from the University of São Paulo.

While Henrique is also well-known for his paintings, this post focuses on his incredible wooden sculptures and installations. Using a combination of reclaimed plywood, fencing and PVC, Oliveira creates organic wooden sculptures that have a movement and flow that makes them feel liquid.

Oliveira’s installations are massive, often overtaking entire rooms and spaces. He first forms his shapes with PVC and then meticulously wraps it in layers of plywood, stripping away layers to reveal different colours of wood.

Be sure to visit Henrique’s official site to see his entire portfolio of work including his paintings and smaller-scale sculptures.
