To tell the story of Viúva Lamego
is to tell the story of
Portuguese tile art. Born in 1849, the pottery workshop
in António Costa Lamego's Intendente
turned into a factory, becoming
one of the most iconic buildings in the city,
from which tiles where exported to
all over the world. Some of the most relevant public art works
of the 20th century
were born from the usual collaboration
of its artisans with plastic artists. Experienced, knowledgeable and secular,
Viúva Lamego is also always
innovative, artistic and relevant.
To tell the story of Add Fuel
is a journey through the world of urban art
that intersects with tiles. Born in 1980, he went
from drawing on paper
to paint on murals, becoming
one of the most interesting artists of his generation,
exhibiting in galleries
all over the globe. From his reinvention of decorative tiles,
were created pieces that cross
the language of urban aesthetic and illustration
to create new forms of art. His work can be presented in different shapes,
colours and places, and is always
emotional, poetic and relevant.
