A different type of street art #4

It's not really street art but the materials used by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira to create these ’s spectacular sculptures does come from the streets. Though he incorporates new, flexible plywood into his work, his primary material remains the discarded wood collected on the streets of São Paulo. To bring his pieces to life, he sometimes uses PVC tubes to create gigantic protruding forms over which he layers thin sheets of wood while other times, thousands of pieces of painted wood are arranged into gestural abstract “paintings” that spill off the wall into the viewer’s space.
