      Henrique Oliveira is a Brazilian artist who creates amazing wooden sculptures that are designed as if to appear like they are breaking through the ceilings and walls of their confines. Henrique only uses salvaged wood, but manages to create some astounding organic forms.

      Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira became internationally recognised by his environmentally friendly installations, and know one more time he fascinate us with his vision of disembodied tree trunks that disturbingly connected with the very place where they are. Whatever how creepy they look like, these tridimensional works of art actually represent an effortless fusion of sculpture, painting, architecture, and the creative imagination of Oliveira himself.

      Trees Burst Through Gallery Walls and Ceilings Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s powerful recycled wood art installations snake through their exhibition spaces like massive living trees that burst out of walls and through ceilings. Oliveira scours the streets of Sao Paulo to gather plywood, which he then separates into layers and combines to create his massive “tridimensionals” sculptures. The stunning mixed media pieces are a combination of sculpture, painting and architecture.

    tree roots emerge from the ceiling in an installation by giuseppe licari

    Initially a painter, Brazilian sculptor Henrique Oliveira was inspired by an old wooden fence he saw through his window across the street from his studio in Sao Paulo. The wood was so weathered that it split into layers, which Oliveira equated to brush strokes.

    Kate MccGwire’s feathered works. Her art feels like it is breathing. It's intimidating mass of feathers that somehow managed to feel both evil and serene yet horrifyingly beautiful. The labor of love that lies behind every time intensive piece inspires to persevere, while the juxtaposition of menace and beauty has everyone looking at everything they see through a different set of eyes.
