Federico Uribe

 


Federico Uribe is an Internationally known artist and one of the top selling artists at Art Basel in Miami. His unique style has created a long list of famous collectors, including Domenico Dolce (Dolce & Gabbana), recording artist Maluma and many more. 

In 1988, Federico Uribe left Colombia and moved to New York where he would study a master in fine arts degree. Throughout those years he was guided by Luis Camnitzer, who taught him essential skills that Federico would later use on his personal artworks. After years of studying and practicing, Federico traveled, living in Cuba, Mexico, Russia, England and Miami where he is currently based.

His most recent work includes a series of animal sculptures created with bullets and colored pencils. This representation with bullets was triggered when the artist recognized animals being hunted for fur and 90 percent of the remains thrown away. Every bullet used to create his sculptures is one less bullet used as a means of violence. The artist also captures the playful adolescence found in puppies with colored pencils as a medium.
