Karmilla Shelly is an Artist and Fine-Art Photographer born in Italy.
She studied scenography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and later perfected her studies obtaining a degree in Contemporary Art.
Karmilla has been using photography and video as a creative media since she was a student, and having worked as a set designer in film environments.
Soon she seeks her own personal style, so she tirelessly devotes herself to her research, moving through physical and mental places of human existence, the main theme on which her compositions are concentrated, which repeatedly focus on the surreal to the conceptual, an investigation aimed at explore the variegated, parallel world of relationships, emotions, and the grotesque.
She also uses photographic manipulation to create night-time images and waterproof portraits of sensuality and mystery, often finding inspiration in Greek classics, romantic literature and the masters of the Renaissance, from which she is strongly attracted.
