MPC Collectibles is Finally Here
MPC Collectibles is built on the notion that art has an integrated and powerful role in our lives. Our pieces blur the boundaries between fine art and design, bringing Mário Pires Cordeiro’s artistry to your everyday. MPC’s creative journey is Lisbon born, London developed, and now San Francisco established.
At the intersection of fine art and function, MPC Collectibles are pieces made for the artistically-minded looking to bring art into every facet of their lives. Each Collectible is an experimental artwork by Mário Pires Cordeiro, hand-crafted from locally-sourced materials right here in San Francisco, California. With his expertise in color and multimedia production, MPC presents a curated selection of pieces ready to be integrated into your life as you live it.

This large scale triptych investigates concepts of boundaries. Using found corduroy spray painted with found spray paints and wrapped around different wooden triangles, this work establishes divides between the different triangles and even larger ones between each piece of the triptych, emphasizing the concept of division as it relates to distinguishing between function and form. The spray paint along the borders of each triangle further emphasize this act of delineation. It is inspired by American quilting practices.
A Look Back
This month, we throwback to Portable Sculpture! Displayed at the Galeria Presença in Porto, Portugal, this structure is made of entirely recycled and found materials, using the base structure from Future Prospectus - Pavilion and recycled paints from Higher. The structure was transported by the artist by van from London to Porto, where he parked the van in the gallery, and constructed the sculpture around it.
