Veronica Merlo

I am a creative from a village in northern Italy.

I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, the city in which I lived and worked between 2011 and 2014. Since 2013 I participated in several exhibitions and live paintings, doing collaborations and working as a freelance painter and illustrator. In 2017 I also worked as Art Director for my city’s Summer festival.

Veronica Merlo


Right after my Master’s Degree I won an Erasmus Scholarship that in March 2018 took me to Edinburgh, where I am currently based.

I worked as a studio assistant in Edinburgh Printmakers from 2018 to 2020. From 2019 to 2020, I’ve been an apprentice at Plus48 Tattoo Studio. Here I started to draw tattoos and paint digitally to reduce the waste of paper I was witnessing. I’ve always preferred to feel the paper and the materials to create my artworks, but an entire world opened up to me. All the paintings are printed on eco-friendly bamboo paper, which is known to be one of the most sustainable materials on earth, as it wastes less water in its cultivation and begins to regrow as soon as it is cut down.
