ADD FUEL is the work of Portuguese artist Diogo Machado.

Although his true origins are still a matter of dispute between Portugal and Spain, João Rodrigues Cabrilho (or Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo) has long been thought of a Portuguese navigator in service of the Spanish crown. Having been the first European to have navigated along the coast of the present-day state of California, I felt a connection I had to explore in this particular mural, together with the patterned tile work.
