Born in Grottaglie (1987) Apulia. Carmen Mitrotta was always attracted to the visual arts growing up, and initially devoted herself to painting at art school in Lecce, Italy. She soon left painting behind to focus exclusively on photography.
It was through her studies of varied mediums of self portrait and experimentation in the dark room that led her to adopting peculiarity in shape and colors to be the main theme in her work.
Carmen Mitrotta currently works and lives in Milan. We can see that color and form are her muse in works which are almost painterly in their composition. Her work touches upon the world of sculpture an installation. She doesn’t stick to the expected, and it’s that element of unpredictability that excites us so much about the work.
