Add Fuel
Solo show at Station 16 Gallery
August 9th – September 1st 2018

Station 16 Gallery presents XVII-XXI, a solo exhibition by Portuguese artist Add Fuel (Diogo Machado b.1980).

Add Fuel has been developing a contemporary approach to the aesthetic language of patterned tiles and related figurative elements from Portuguese culture for almost a decade, in walls and in ceramic panels. Combining a visual universe populated by a cast of eccentric creatures inspired from video games, comics, animation, sci-fi, low-budget B films, designer toys, and urban visual culture with traditional tile design, specifically that of the Portuguese tin-glazed ceramic azulejo, Add Fuel has created his own distinct style that has captivated audiences worldwide.

XVII-XXI explores the connections between the old techniques of ceramic painting and elements of our increasingly technological and mediacentric society. The exhibition will include hand painted ceramic panels, with materials and pigments reproduced from the 17th century as well as new techniques that the artist has been exploring in his ceramic work.

The vernissage will be held on August 9th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Station 16 Gallery with the artist in attendance and the exhibition will run until September 1st, 2018.
