Shoelace Paintings by Federico Uribe

Some starvin' artists make do with a shoestring budget, but Miami-based artist Federico Uribe makes his art on a literal shoestring budget: he uses colorful shoelaces to "paint."

Federico Uribe's process is as painstaking as you can imagine. He carefully selects the string colors to use, weaves them together and pins each one to the canvas at various points so it doesn't fall off. Each creation can take up to 30 days (on a 10-hours a day schedule) to finish as a result of the intricate process.
