Henrique Oliveira
Visual Arts Residency

Henrique Oliveira is a Brazilian artist whose work uses a wide range of references–from science-fiction and medical text to Art History and psychoanalysis. These subjects converge into an innovative visual language that combines biomorphic images and urban materiality. Moving through the frontiers of sculpture, painting and architecture, they may be presented as wall relieves, free-standing pieces or walking-in environments – hybrid spaces that often bring back the form of the raw material which they are made of, re-signifying industrial products beyond their ordinary use.
