I’m Federico, a Colombian artist currently living in Miami. This is my new series called “We’re at peace”. This series consists in freestanding sculptures and bas-relief paintings entirely composed of bullet shells that play with the juxtaposition between whimsical subject matter, animals or landscapes that are full of life, and a historically emblematic and lethal medium.

Once again and as a recurrent intention in my work, I encourage the viewer to discover, beyond the sole function of an object, an underlying symbolic and aesthetic reality where life overcomes death and beauty, supplants destruction.
