The book will trace nearly 30 years of his work, from earliest oil paintings, through his significant 1990s embrace of everyday 3-dimenstional objects, to his evolution toward a more pictorial style. Federico Uribe (born in Colombia in 1962) studied art at the University of Los Andes in Bogota and in 1988 moved to New York bringing his global vision that encapsulates his years of work in Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Russia, and England."-- Provided by publisher.
