ADD FUEL is the world wide work of Diogo Machado, illustrator and street artist.
Amadora, Portugal, 2017
In the 16th century the Portuguese poet Luís Vaz de Camões wrote “The Lusiads”, a poem in ten cantos that came to be seen as the nation's epic.
In 2017, the Portuguese hip-hop band MGDRV composed the 11th canto and I was invited to translate the track into an artwork.
This was a multifaceted project involving one song, ten azulejos, and one mural.
