About Karmilla Shelly

Karmilla Shelly is an artist and fine art photographer born in Italy.
She studied set design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and subsequently completed his studies obtaining a degree in Contemporary Art.
Karmilla has been using photography and video as a creative media since she was a student attracted to the cinema and video world.
Soon she seeks her personal style, tirelessly devoting herself to a deep search of the physical and mental places of human existence, the impulses of the soul attract it as well as psychology, fundamental themes on which her compositions are concentrated with dreamlike and surreal references, a 'investigation aimed at exploring the diverse and parallel world of relationships, emotions and sometimes grotesque human world.
For her works, in addition to pure photography, she uses graphic manipulation, sometimes combined with stage elements in 3D to create or reinvent fantasy stories or nocturnal images with waterproof portraits of sensuality and mystery, sometimes drawing inspiration from classic fables, Greek classics and romantic literature or to the masters of the Renaissance.
