Unique Hybrid Colored Pencil Drawings by Federico Uribe

It's safe to say that these aren't your normal colored pencil drawings. Colombia-born, Miami-based conceptual artist Federico Uribe's latest series, called Color Constuido, consists of 20 drawings that are part built with and part drawn by colored pencils. Though the drawings all have a sociological, philosophical or personal story behind them, they're all constructed in a similar fashion. The very same colored pencils Uribe draws with are the ones he also uses in the piece.Therefore, he's mixing two art production techniques – drawing and collage.

“Hopefully I make images that stick to people's minds, no matter how they interpret them,” he tells us. “Since these images employ two techniques, I try to relate the images to each other. They are about dreams, reflection and fantasies.”

You've seen Uribe's work pop up on My Modern Met multiple times before. He's also the creative behind the life-size pencil figures and those explosive show lace murals.
