This week we welcome Shiva Tamara, a mixed media artist and designer. Tamara has worked with a variety of clients, ranging from the entertainment world to the fashion industry, and has exhibited their work in the U.S. and abroad. In addition to their paintings, their upcycled apparel and decor pieces are one-of-a-kind items created and produced in their studio by hand.
Tamara’s art explores the intersection of feminism and representations of the nude female form. By reclaiming and challenging traditional notions of beauty, Tamara aims to empower women and challenge societal expectations placed upon them.
Through their paintings, Tamara strives to depict the female body as a symbol of strength, resilience, and agency, transcending the objectification often associated with nudity. Each brushstroke becomes a celebration of individuality, diversity, and the inherent beauty that lies within all women.
By embracing the female form in its unapologetic rawness, Tamara’s art becomes a catalyst for dialogue and a visual manifesto for gender equality.
