︎ FILM STILL BY FIM
Tamara Alves (b. 1983 in Portimão) 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 tattoos to the street.
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).
