Henrique Oliveira is an emerging Brazilian artist known for his spatial wooden pieces whose irregular forms devour large spaces which give you the sense that you are actually inhabiting someone’s body.
In his very round wooden installations he explores the elasticity of PVC tubes playing with the idea of swollen walls. Through these pieces, he gives a sense of movement whilst creating dramatic surfaces that capture viewers. Oliveira’s art may not convey messages, however as he explains – in his interview with Yatzer – his Brazilian identity and culture is something that is very evident in his work. “I believe that everything that we make is the result of our life experience, our culture, our language and the exchanges we have made with other people during our lives,” he says.
