Tamar Dolev is an award winning artist who recently won the Bayside library Acquisitive art prize. She has also been the recipient of other awards since completing her Fine art degree from Monash University.

Over the years Tamar has participated in successful group and solo exhibitions as well as other arts related community projects and fundraising events. Tamar has developed her own unique style that is evident in all her creations ranging from, painting, sand art, sculptures, photography, animation as well as designs for her clothing range.

Her passion , her unique and colourful outlook on life and her creativity is evident in her works and her continuing connection and interactions she has created for herself in her community.

Tamar's photography comes from incidental, quiet journeys that she encounters in her day to day happenings.

Throughout the years Tamar has developed her own unique style in her paintings. She creates fun, vibrant characters who go on their own adventures where anything is possible.

Tamar creates imaginative sculptures where she utilise the rubbish, waste, the left behind and other found materials that are then recycled into sculptural forms that are representative of architectural spaces.

Tamar has been exploring colour, line and shape through other mediums such as animation.
