Henrique Oliveira's eco art is comprised of plywood he sourced primarily from Sao Paulo dumpsters. The undulating forms are impressive, both in their size and overall aesthetic. Since most of the plywood comes from fences that have been dismantled, Oliveira's pieces are insights into both urban decay and the spirit of reuse.

The first four images come from Oliveira's 'Tapumes' exhibition at the Rice Gallery in Houston, Texas; the remainder are from Henrique Oliveira's past collections.
