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.
