MP & MP PINK
San Fernando, Cádiz, Spain, 1971.
Miguel Pablo and Manuel Pedro Rosado work and live in Seville. They are twin brothers who work under the name MP & MP Rosado. They trained in Fine Arts at the University of Seville and at the School of Fine Arts in Athens.
Doctors in Fine Arts from the University of Seville, they are currently associate professors. Since the mid-1990s they have been working on the constitutive mechanisms of the discourse on the subject and its environment. Their twin, paradoxical condition allows them to explore duality and the alter ego, the construction of the self, individual and collective, "as an immense mirror in which we recognise ourselves". Perhaps for this reason, the most constant characteristics of their work have been the presence of the double, the ambiguity resulting from duplication, reflection and simulated repetition. Other characteristics of his projects are the exploration of life experiences, the private emotional substratum, the relationship between form and surface, language and meaning, emotions, subjective choices.
Through all this, he has managed to create a refined universe of conceptual references. Recipients of the Pilar Juncosa & Sotheby's grant.

San Fernando, Cádiz, Spain, 1971.
Miguel Pablo and Manuel Pedro Rosado live and work in Sevilla. They are twin brothers who work under the name MP & MP Rosado. They have studied Fine Arts at the University of Seville and the School of Fine Arts in Athens. They received a doctorate in Fine Arts from the University of Seville where today they work as associate professors. Since the mid-90s, MP & MP Rosado have developed a work based on the constituent mechanisms of individual speech of the subject and their environment. Their paradoxical condition as twins has allowed them to explore the notions of duality and alter ego, and the construction of the individual and collective self; "like a huge mirror in which we cognize ourselves". Perhaps for this reason, the presence of the doublé is constantly reoccurring in their work, simulating there sulting ambiguity of duplication, reflection and repetition. Other pieces explore themes surrounding the relationship between form and surface language, meaning, emotion and subjective choice.
In doing so the artists have created a refined conceptual universe of references.
