Henrique Oliveira was born in Ourinhos, Brazil in 1973 and hails from the university of SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil. Oliveira uses wood collected from the streets of SÃ£o Paulo where he lives, to create huge installations which he refers to as “tridimensionals”. The thin sections of wood are obtained from old fencing and boarding known as ‘tapumes”, are bent and curved into these enormous structures that seem to spill off the gallery walls.
