Born in 1991, Melissa Marcello is a professional fashion photographer with a strong passion for art, painting and haute couture.

Graduated in Communication, Media and Advertising and attending a Master Degree in Art, Valorisation and Market IULM University in Milan, she started the UTPICTURA_PROJECT in 2018.

Her project aims to communicate art in an unconventional and inclusive way, merging photography, painting and haute couture and translating the past in a modern language.

Deeply influenced by fashion and ancient painters such as Caravaggio and Pre-Raphaelite artists, she creates unique pieces of art using internal geometries, a real balance between the image, the composition and the colours, to get ethereal and timeless portraits.

As a freelance photographer, she worked several years in Berlin (Germany) and then moved back to Milan where she is actually based.
