Pencilism: Artworks Made of Pencils by Federico Uribe
Federico Uribe is a conceptual artist from Colombia that creates sensational artworks using everyday materials.
One of his most impressive series is this one entitled “Pencilism”, produced using fragments of multicolored pencils.
“He uses colorful pieces of fragmented pencils, sometimes held together with zip-ties, to create sculpted landscapes, animals, paintings, and even three-dimensional human figures. His selected medium is more customarily used to actually produce the final artwork. However, in this work, Uribe transforms the pencils into the art itself.”Art Posted on May 27, 2014
