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.

They received important scholarships as the Leonardo Scholarship for Researchers and Cultural Creators granted by the BBVA Foundation 2017/2018 for the project “Body of work”; or the Pilar Juncosa & Sotheby’s and Fundació Pilar Joan Miró in Mallorca (2014-2015). They have exhibited at the ISCP International Studio & Curatorial Program New York (2007) and they have been awarded V Premio ARCO Comunidad de Madrid (2008) and the IV Premio Iniciartede la Consejería de Cultura de la Junta de Andalucía (2009).
