Natascia Mercurio, alias Naty was born in 1996 in Italy. She’s an Art Director, Photographer and Filmmaker. Her love for art has helped her go through all the stages of creativity, from illustrating characters to taking photos since 2011 and directing her own shortfilms.
She defines herself as a storyteller since she aims to convey emotion through everything she captures. A large part of the enjoyment for her comes from playing with light and color to define feelings of warmth(happiness, joy, serenity) and cold(sadness, closeness, calmness) altogether.
Naty’s works take you into a diverse world with multiple strong characters and powerful stories.
People would define her color palette as the usual ‘’teal & orange’’ but she has made such a classic cine-color into something so personal and recognizable. Her characteristic aesthetic makes her have room to roam across genres without risking her consistency. She has always been a huge fan of video-games, anime, mangas and Asian movies that’s why she’s drawn towards this cinematic world of hers.
After graduating in graphic design, she began working as an Art Director near Milan. After 4 years of curating big clients like Mercedes, Etro, Teatro alla Scala and also has been supported by Sony, Billboard, 500px, etc. she decided to quit her full-time job to dedicate all of her time to photos and videos. Since 2021 she has been interested in the world of crypto art and begins to create her first NFTs. To date, she is constantly curating her aesthetic and dropping new work every month showcasing her variety as an artist.
