  • Biography: Tamara Alves (b. 1983) is a Portuguese artist, based in Lisbon who’s inspired by urban life. Making use of supports with multifaceted characteristics – from painting to illustration, from installation to urban art, Tamara is fascinated by “contextual” art, which is inserted in the world, ignoring conventional places such as museums or galleries, in order to present her works of art in the street or in public spaces. 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 that she has been a part of several projects, group and solo exhibitions and street art interventions.
