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.”
