Tamara Torres is an interdisciplinary Afro-Caribbean feminist artist, community activist, and mother based in Trenton, New Jersey. Torre's artistic work is varied and presented in multiple mediums such as collaged narrative, mindscape abstract paintings, and performance. Her art and praxis are directly tied to her own family and experience, addressing advocacy for women's rights, racial equity, the stigma of mental illness, among other topics.
Tamara Torres paints live during "Keeping Vigil" at Artworks Trenton in May 2022. Her studio is open to visitors and is located at:
Artworks Trenton, Upstairs Studio
19 Everett Alley, Trenton, NJ 08611
Inaugural Artist-In-Residence, Tamara Torres, had an incredible impact on the first season. Not only was her artwork leased for concert programs and posters, she asked to paint live during one of our concerts in the spring (left). Her artwork seeks to engage the viewer in a story - a perfect pairing with our concerts.
Tamara’s art has been exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, London, Edinburgh, Rome and elsewhere. In 2022, she was selected to be an art ambassador for the international women's day Art Connects Women event in Dubai, U.A.E. She sold three original paintings through her engagement with The LOTUS Project.
