PUBLIC Campus 2016 @ Curtin

Urban Artist Add Fuel reinterprets the traditional Portuguese glazed tile design, known as azulejo, creating layers of history over and beneath existing structures using stencils. The blue patterning he creates on walls and facades seems straightforward from a distance but up close it reveals a quirky, contemporary twist.

Add Fuel’s main focus is to contextualize his murals, either with ceramics, typical clothing or cultural references. For Curtin, he drew on Western Australia’s diverse wildlife, integrating native creatures into the fluid forms and patterns he created with his stencils.

Personally I loved the scale and blue-popping-out-of-the-environment colours of the mural in Curtin.
