Who Is Tamara Alves?

Tamara Alves is a Portuguese artist, based in Lisbon who’s inspired by urban life. Tamara is focused on illustration, painting, tattoos and street art.

“The work of Tamara Alves represents an erotic view of a contemporary body with the effects of its own limits expanded. Instead of a rational thinking there’s a rough passion, a body-without-organs, a becoming animal, the experienced sensations, ‘starving histerical naked’ (Allen Ginsberg).
Since 2000 she has been a part of several projects, group and solo exhibitions, street art interventions and she’s one of the most notorious female street artists in Portugal.”*

    These are amazing – the octopus heart is a bit odd, but beautiful.
