Tamara Sneep Says: Welcome to the Madhouse (Gallery) Altea!

There’s a quirky new gallery on Carrer Mare Nostrum, Altea. There you will find the vibrant shades of the Mediterranean, infused with glitter, gold, and all things shiny, and also functional but beautiful furniture, paintings, decorations – and even the occasional rainbow animal skull. Not to mention full size gorillas, giraffes and crocodiles. Welcome to Tamara Sneep’s Madhouse Gallery!


Tamara is a Dutch-born artist, resident at the gallery, where she is always creating more and more art, in whatever form takes her fancy. As she says:


As you pass the gallery, you will probably find me working on one of my pieces. I love shiny things and bold, bright colours, and I have been working with Swarovsky elements in my art for the last decade. My art takes many forms, from paintings, to bottles, to life-size animals. I love to create new art all the time.

Tamara opened the gallery in January, so she had hardly become established before the gallery was forced to close as part of the measures to manage the Covid-19 outbreak in Spain. However, nothing can dim the creative spirit of a true artist, and the break from trading has allowed her to create even more quirky, chic pieces to brighten up your home or your outdoor space, and provide a unique conversation starter for your friends and family.


As well as her own work, Tamara exhibits items from a number of international artists, and while they all work in different ways and with different mediums, they have one thing in common. They each express their art in their own, unique ways. Every piece in The Madhouse Gallery will make you gasp, smile, laugh out loud, or maybe weep from its sheer beauty. To the artists, whose work is an extension of their lives, if a piece doesn’t move you in some way, it doesn’t work on any level.

Young people in particular, who may not have considered themselves as art lovers, will find something that speaks to them, through its sheer energy and beauty. Art is for everyone, not just the privileged few, and this is what Tamara and her fellow artists are keen to emphasise in their work. It’s also fun, and you will have a lot of fun when you step into The Madhouse.


There’s a practical facet to the gallery too, as it stocks exclusive Richmond furniture, which is stylish, comfortable, and an asset to any home. The Madhouse guarantees a delivery time of two weeks, and you will find the furniture tastefully arranged in different settings, to give you artistic inspiration for your own home. Tamara or one of the team will be happy to discuss your requirements, and make suggestions for decorations and accessories to lift your living space out of the ordinary.
