Federico Uribe is a conceptual artist resorting to the language of pop art through the use of objects of daily life. He creates sculptures, which are not sculpted but constructed, and weaved, in all kinds of different ways, curious and unpredictable, repetitive and almost compulsive. They follow the classics canons of figurative and abstract art, but the result is absolutely unusual, whimsical, of enormous efficacy and communicability. Federico Uribe has had over 20 solo shows to date, including exhibitions in London, Padova, Italy, his hometown of Bogota and his 2013 installation, 'Fantasy River' at the Hudson River Museum in New York.
