Tamara Jovandic-Everson was born in Sarajevo, former Yugoslavia, in 1968.
Tamara took up residency in the UK in 1992 and sice then lives and works in North London.
She completed an BA-Hons in Fine Art with distinction at the Academy of Art in Sarajevo 1991.
Since then, she had over thirty group exhibitions in UK, Irlead, France and USA and five solo shows.
Tamara exhibited at prestigious art galleries such as Mall Gallery, Cork Street, Royal College of Art and many more.
Tamara works predominantly on a large scale canvases from very figurative and expressive faze (over the period of many years) to completely abstrac, in recent few years.
Figurative phase in Tamara's work explore female sexuality and nudity through solitude and expressionistic imagery, highlighting spiritual and sometimes religious themes which suggests paradox.
Exploring the human body through suffering, sacrifice, isolation and solitude is autobiographical: based on life in exile, and a homeland torn apart in civil war.
The most recent works are liberated from narrative and derived from figurative by enlarging parts of painting and then painting it on a larger scale.
The concept is to display both, figurative and abstract works.
I enjoy bringing dramatic contrast to my works, using variety of mediums to build texture including sand, plaster and resin.
