Diogo Machado aka Add Fuel recently took part in Muraliza 2016 festival held in Torre neighborhood of Cascais, Portugal. Using his stencil style based on traditional “azulejo” ceramic, the work by Portuguese artist aims to bring past local traditions and culture to the present.
Built in the 1960’s, Torre was originally designed as a suburb to relocate fishermen and their families that inhabited the center of the village. With only 30ish buildings, these families still reside in the area and the artist decided to paint a tribute to their tradition. The mural titled “Avarina” is dedicated to the “varinas”, wives of the local fishermen that were selling fresh fish brought home by their husbands. It turned out that the actual building he was painting on was the exact spot where local “varina” Helene was selling fish few decades ago. (Photo by Miguel Oliveira)
