His work has been exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions in the US and abroad, including the 48th Venice Biennale, Museum Sala Uno (Rome), the Boca Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum (Venice) and The Sculpture Center (New York).

He claims it is hard to conform when there are so many options. Taupin sees his art as a visual extension of what he has spent his life creating through words 'The imagination, in my estimation, is the most powerful tool the artist possess enabling us to conjure up beautiful distraction for the ears and eyes.' He has been busy touring with his art exhibitions all across the US. Taupin born in the United Kingdom currently resides in California. His works are included in many significant collections worldwide. 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.
