Born and still working in Brazil, Henrique Oliveria uses salvaged wood collected from the streets of São Paulo to create amazing massive scale, site-specific installations with dense layers that twist, curve, bend, and split. His work makes you question, and stare in disbelief.

He 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.
