Artist collaboration in partnership with Gallery Geukens & Devil 

Shirley Villavicencio Pizango uses Mariko bags for her artworks. The leather handbags became a canvas for the artist to play with, which resulted in a series of 10 unique self-portraits, moving at the intersection of design and art. Each bag is painted by hand and signed by the artist.

We would like to emphasize that these bags are not utensils but works of art. Using this as a bag could damage the painting on it.

Because of the trapezoidal shape of the Mariko bag, this piece of art can stand on its own. The measurements are 8 x 19 x 26.

Waiting lists can take up to several months for Shirley’s work. Don’t miss out on this unique collaboration, limited to 10 pieces.
