ADD FUEL (PT)

Add Fuel is a Portugese artist who reinterprets the language of traditional tile design, in particular the Portuguese azulejo (glazed tiles).

His technique of revealing and obscuring surfaces beneath or on top of existing structures and walls creates a unique optical illusion effect. From a distance his vector-based or stencil works appear to be recreating traditional motifs but are in fact brimming with pop and contemporary art references. On closer inspection it's possible to discover a hidden world filled with humor and rendered with a masterful attention to detail. At the core of his practice is this desire to encourage the viewer to think about the history and heritage that lies beneath the facades and pavements of our cities.

To contextualize his street pieces, Add Fuel researches traditional patterns from the region in which he is working. For his participation in Nuart Festival he will work with traditional ‘Rosemaling’ patterns taken from the Rogaland region.
