Nicoletta Papamichael was born in Larnaca in 1977. She studied Fine Arts at the Florence Academy of Fine Arts, where from she graduated with distinction in 2001.

In 2002 she entered in the Complutense University of Madrid, and followed a Masters course titled Theory and Practice of the Contemporary Art.

In 2006 she was accepted at a PhD programme of the same University under the general title “drawing and engraving, teaching and creativity”. She has successfully finished its first part with her thesis: “Self portrait: the Art to share Intimacy”.

Terms as Intimacy, Private and Personal as well as their role in the artistic creation, are questions that preoccupy her both in her artistic and theoretical research.

icoletta has presented three solo exhibitions in Cyprus and two solo presentations in Madrid and has presented her work in Florence, Madrid, Barcelona and Berlin, as well as in many group exhibitions in Cyprus.
