3. Tami Martins | @tamimartinsss

The artist left her job as a design teacher and decided to immerse herself in the charms of the land of palm oil: “I came to do urban art, write scripts…” But Tami’s projects in Salvador do not stop there. With animated illustrations, she has created and directed the short film for the Solitude Animação project, which is from Amapá. In addition, she was recently invited to animate, along with a team, the illustrations by artist Duardo Costa, which will be at the launch show for the new album by Bahian singer Larissa Luz.

In the main themes of Tami’s works are nature serving as a metaphor for growth (with flowers, for example), urban life and female empowerment. “Whether it’s mural art or graffiti, these are jobs that demand a lot from the physical. Sometimes spending a lot of time in the sun, or going up and down scaffolding and stairs”, explains the artist, showing the diverse feminine forces of the area. “So I usually charge a price that values ​​the time dedicated to this process. I would never charge less than R$1,500 for any painting,” she concludes.
