Add Fuel

The current practice of Portuguese artist Add Fuel (Diogo Machado) combines traditional decorative elements with contemporary visual references presented in new forms.

While at first glance, his work on tiles, large-scale stencil murals, and printed editions might appear to be a pastiche of classical formalism, a closer examination rewards the viewer with a complex world of patterns and characters, brimming with double meanings.

Exploring a wide range of manual and digital techniques in drawing, painting, ceramics, and engraving, his practice expresses a sophisticated dialogue between the old and the new, between heritage and modernity.
