Fabien Castanier Gallery is excited to present a solo exhibition for contemporary Portuguese artist Add Fuel, “A P O P H E N I A”. This will be the first solo show for the artist at the gallery and will feature new pieces from the artist as well as the release of an exclusive silkscreen print at the exhibition’s opening. Add Fuel will paint a mural in Miami and additionally present a special installation project as part of Art Miami, taking place Dec 5-10, in collaboration with the gallery’s participation at the art fair. Add Fuel’s work for “A P O P H E N I A” highlights the meticulous technique in which the artist has honed, the manipulation of ceramic tiles. Incorporating masterful rendering of patterns, he creates work that engages the eye with visual depth both within the sculptural nature of his pieces as well as in the intricate painted motifs.

Opening Reception with the Artist | Thursday, Dec 7th @ 6-10pm
Add Fuel (b. 1980, Cascais), Portuguese visual artist Diogo Machado, began his practice with a degree in graphic design from Lisbon’s IADE – Institute of Visual Arts, Design and Marketing. He spent several years working in design studios in Portugal as well as Munich, Germany, and since 2007 has focused exclusively on his artistic work. Exploring a wide range of both manual and digital techniques in the fields of drawing, painting, ceramics, and printing, his practice expresses a sophisticated dialogue between the old and the new. Besides numerous public art presentations he has created all around the world, Add Fuel continues to showcase his work with solo and group exhibitions in international galleries.
