henrique oliveira

Artist henrique oliveira has made a number blog runs already but his work is too incredible to pass up. Henrique reuses old and peeling wood and turns them into these incredible curving, undulating installations. i am dying to see these in person, but in the meantime, i can’t think of a prettier piece of eye-candy for friday morning.
You can see a bunch more on his website HERE
