about Add Fuel
Cascaes (Portugal), 1980
Add Fuel is the Portuguese visual artist Diogo Machado. Fascinated by the aesthetic possibilities of symmetrical patterns and tessellations, his works focus towards working with and reinterpreting the language of traditional tile design, and that of the Portuguese tinned ceramic tile in particular. Effortlessly blending these two seemingly irreconcilable visual idioms, his current practice seeks to combine traditional decorative elements with contemporary visual references in new forms that reveal an impressive complexity and masterful attention to detail.
