ABOUT THE ART
Inspired by his dazzling design for Superplastic's Janky Series Two, acclaimed Lisbon-based street artist Add Fuel’s elegant 'Fragil SuperJanky' features an exclusive high-gloss finish to match his famed azulejo mosaic tiles. Mini tile included! Decked out with bold symmetric patterning in the artist’s distinctive blue & white palette, Fragil is a seriously magnificent monster. ¡Que legal!
8-inches tall, soft vinyl, special high-gloss finish. Just 600 made.
An accomplished graphic designer and illustrator, Add Fuel (Diogo Machado, 1980) has been building a solid reputation as a visual and graphic artist in recent years. Having first created a unique visual universe populated by sci-fi inspired, fun-loving creatures, the Portuguese artist has recently redirected his attention to reinterpreting the language of traditional tile design, and the Portuguese azulejo in particular.
Brimming with irony and humour, his vector-based designs or stencil-based street interventions reveal an impressive complexity and a masterful attention to detail. He has been exhibiting his work in both solo and group shows since 2006.
