Venetia Alia is an Indian American content creator based in New York City. Venetia started using her Instagram account, @veneti.a
, as a concept board for her personal projects, which later evolved into a creative outlet for her styling and photography when the world went on pause because of COVID-19. Her bio shares her mantra, “casual pursuer of aesthetic melancholy,” which is the point of departure she uses throughout her content. Venetia finds the beauty in everyday melancholy and seeks out moments to capture using dim, natural light.
As a former architect, Venetia immediately aligned with THE RAYY’s sculptural design and the notion of using science in the service of art.
