Federico Uribe’s works look like conventional paintings, but look closer – they’re actually composed of colorful shoelaces, painstakingly arranged and pinned to the canvas. The cunning creations take up to 30 10-hour days to craft, and earn up to $73,000 apiece. See a slideshow of more of his whimsical work.

This portait of a man with a sunflower, "Ars Poetica," is Uribe's personal favorite.
