About the Event
Join us as we celebrate the final days of Mário Pires Cordeiro's "Triptych"
Portuguese-American artist Mário Pires Cordeiro experiments with media and color as he explores the interaction between art and design, with a larger intention to comment on the interwoven relationship between visual art and functional objects. His practice is deeply rooted in the theme of color— unpacking the symbolic and cultural meanings imposed on it in contemporary society by sourcing colors from trends and design forecasts as well as from particular environments or publications.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mário Pires Cordeiro is a San Francisco-based artist born in Lisbon, Portugal. He received his MFA at the University of London and completed three years of a PhD researching color trends in fine arts. He has been commissioned by the Olympic and Paralympic Games Committee and the Cape Farewell Foundation and has put on several solo and group exhibitions. He is an artist at the Minnesota Street Project Studios, San Francisco, California.
MPC’s art develops the relationship between fine art and design, commenting on the interaction between visual art and functional objects through experimentation in media and color. Color is his main focus, unpacking the symbolic and cultural meanings imposed on it in contemporary society by sourcing colors from trends and design forecasts as well as from particular environments or publications. He often uses color as an entry point into understanding and establishing identity, whether it be of a given space, time, object, attitude, etc. He finds inspiration in modern architecture, engineering, and geometry, distilling extremely intricate concepts into distinct shapes. He works with a variety of media, from painting and sculpture to ceramic and clothing.
