Alvira Ferreira is a visual artist from Cape Town, South Africa who has relocated to Luxembourg. She works mostly in oil paint and collage. The concepts she explores are of human interactions and intervention in specific times and space. Her work speaks about how we live, how we could live and the unforeseen things in life. The pieces she makes ask how the ordinary and the extraordinary interact and show how there are no unimportant things in life. She loves working on collaborative art projects and enjoys spreading the creative spirit through teaching art classes.
