Tamara Alves is a Portuguese visual artist and illustrator, currently based in Lisbon.
Tamara Alves has been weaving a narrative that celebrates in a raw, poetic way the primeval vitality of strong sensations, of an animal becoming, of brute passion, as opposed to rational deliberation.
Based on the idea that our instincts are what defines us, the artist invokes a universe of (female) human and animal figures in interaction with the natural landscape and objects imbued with a strong symbolic charge that invite us to embrace feelings as a wild and untamed driving force. In this artwork, Flowers simbolize the inner evolution, the long path that the human being goes through. This evolution goes side by side with taking care of this flower, taking care of each other, taking care of ourselves.
