Moniker Editions is pleased to announce our May Charitable print release with Portuguese artist, ADD FUEL
Add Fuel is visual artist Diogo Machado, based in Cascais, Portugal. A former graphic designer, his artistic practice has been focused on reinterpreting and playing with the language of traditional tile design, and that of the Portuguese tin-glazed ceramic azulejo in particular. Blending traditional and contemporary elements, his original vector-based designs and stencil-based street art reveal an impressive complexity and a masterful attention to detail.
Based on a combination of tessellations that create balance from symmetrical repetitions and visual illusion techniques such as trompe-l'œil, his multi-layered patterned compositions create a poetic rhythm that plays with the viewer's perception and the possibilities of interpretation. He has been showcasing his work in both solo and group exhibitions since 2006, as well as participating in some of the world's leading urban art events.
Add Fuel brings to Moniker Editions a Redux version of one of his most beloved images, Home Street Home.
The Four-colored hand pulled screen print features the words Home Street Home, marking an end to European Lock-downs and allowing people to venture out of their homes and back onto the streets. This work also acknowledges the many people across every city that did not ever get to go home, as they are classified as homeless. The pandemic has been extremely difficult for those that had no home to feel safe within.
15% of all profits from the sale of the print will go directly to CENTRO DE APOIO AO SEM-ABRIGO – CASA.
