Artist of the moment… Brazilian Mixed Media Artist Henrique Oliveira

 

 

This artist is creative in his works, I don’t even know what to call the pieces. A sort of sculpture with varying colors.

Below is a youtube clip about the artist discussing his work on a show called gallery talk

 

His main works now are large scale installations he makes from discarded word and building materials. Early on he mixed glue and paint and sometimes sand. While he was a student he noticed the wood decaying and falling apart that was covering a building project.  He loved the decay and the coloring. He used the wood and made his first signature installation from it.

The artist calls the works tridimensionals.

The artist works mainly from woods gathered outside his studio in Sao Paulo.

The artist was in Boulder yesterday for a show opening and you can read about it here

Keep learning!
