QUEDAMOS EN PAZ #3

Federico Uribe

Colombian-born, Miami-based artist Federico Uribe trained as a painter, but in 1996 he abandoned paint brushes to make art with the objects of everyday life. In the At Peace series he creates sculptures from ammunition, his work informed both by his homeland Colombia, where violence is part of daily life, and the epidemic of gun crime in the United States where he has lived for 15 years.
