Add Fuel is Portuguese visual artist and illustrator Diogo Machado (b. 1980). A former graphic designer, his recent artistic practice has been focused on reinterpreting and playing with the language of traditional tile design, and that of the Portuguese tin-glazed ceramic azulejo in particular. Blending traditional and contemporary elements, his original vector-based designs and stencil-based street art reveal an impressive complexity and a masterful attention to detail.
Based on a combination of tessellations that create balance from symmetrical repetitions and visual illusion techniques such as trompe-l'œil, his multi-layered patterned compositions create a poetic rhythm that plays with the viewer's perception and the possibilities of interpretation. He has been showcasing his work in both solo and group exhibitions since 2006, as well as participating in some of the world's leading urban art events.
