Pencil art by Federico Uribe – impressive paintings, sculptures and installations made entirely out of pencils. Colored pencils – the most amazing source of creativity. They can not only draw, they can be used as the material at hand, the same as a sculptor uses clay, and the artist – paint. Colombian artist Federico Uribe has created a series called “Pencilism” – amazing paintings and sculptures of colored pencils. His incredible creations are amazing and perfect in every detail, perfectly performed by the game of color and size. And, if we discard the notion of classical works of art, the work of Federico Uribe may well be regarded as masterpieces of modern art. And that is very realistic three-dimensional artwork of landscapes, animals and people.
