  • Details: WOOL – Covilhã Urban Art Festival, that merged in 2011 in Covilhã, for various reasons beyond our control, didn’t get more support or funding for a second edition, so obviously we searched for other geographies, new projects and new formats. The first place that welcome us was LXFactory in Lisbon (as Rua Rodrigues Faria, 103 – www.lxfactory.com), undeniably the most creative and artistic center of the capital, which was installed in an old flourmill and later printer industry, a place filled with old and gray facades. This is a piece from the second group of artists that were featured at LXFactory, for WOOL ON TOUR 02. A piece by Add Fuel, a reinterpretation of the traditional Portuguese tile, with a stencil technique. And leaving a strong message, with 'Antiga Mente Nova' (in english 'Old mind New')
  • Biography: Diogo Machado excels in creating imaginary worlds, where he combines fictional characters, decorative elements, a distinctive trait, an omnipresent humor and a remarkable sense of symmetry. In the series of tiles that he stencils and/or lays on the walls, he creates the idea of a trompe l'oeil, leading us to believe that these are scenes inspired in a medieval universe; such is the rigor with which he draws. However, when we're closer and see the tiles carefully, we discover a completely contemporary composition of figures and creatures. It's a pop world, strange, were irony is always present.
