Artist HENSE (also known as Alex Brewer) creates colorful street art by painting carefully arranged cinder blocks and oddly placed planks of wood. Brewer's cinder block sculptures have some pop art qualities that make them rather hard to ignore. These blocks have been brightly painted, each with a different pattern. After painting them, Brewer piled these color-popping blocks in eye-catching triangular patterns.

Brewer considers his artworks to be contemporary. He sets these colorful installations up in public spaces so that everyone can enjoy them. His brightly colored wooden sculptures seem to be set up in more remote areas, like forest clearings and abandoned barnyards. These, like the cinder blocks, incorporate interesting patterns and vivid colors.

Alex Brewer hopes to spread his public artworks out internationally, sharing his day-brightening sculptures with strangers across the globe.
