One Christmas when I was 7 my parents bought this for me and my little sister. On my mom’s first move she got ‘kidnapped by monkeys’ and she went to the bathroom and started screaming and then my dad told me and my younger sister to run away or they’d get us too.
They found us half way down the block with our jackets on upside down and laughed at our tears.
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.
