Henrique Oliveira

Visual artist
Location: Sao Paulo (Brasil


Born in Ourinhos, Brazil in 1973, he received a BFA in painting in 2004 and a masters in visual poetics in 2007 from the University of São Paulo, Brazil. Oliveira uses salvaged wood collected from the streets of São Paulo to create massive scale. Site-specific installations with dense layers that twist, curve, bend, and split. Oliveira uses tapumes — which in Portugese can mean fencing, boarding, or enclosure. As a title for many of his large-scale installations. The term makes reference to the temporary wooden construction fences seen throughout the city of São Paulo where Oliveira lives.
