Everyday Objects Art by Federico Uribe

Already an accomplished, world-renown painter, 45-year-old Federico Uribe thought he’d try creating artworks from everyday objects like pencils, sneakers or mops.

For one of his exhibitions, Uribe used 1,500 pieces of footwear and 25,000 shoe laces to create a collection of animals, including a cow, a zebra and a swimming duck. He also managed to create a very realistic sheep out of cleaning mops. The artist  said he wanted to recreate nature from its own raw materials.

Federico Uribe also works with thousands of pencils and carefully ties them together with rubber bands, to create amazing works of art. The Colombian master uses up to 5,000 pencils to create his characters.

Uribe says 10-12 hours every day, six days a week, but, thanks to his skill, spends a lot less time working on his art, than people believe.
