After earning her Bachelors in Law in Madrid, Silvia Ulloa relocated to Amsterdam in order to redefine herself as a visual artist, at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie first and later on at the Dutch Art Institute, DAI. Documenting her own work, she became fascinated with the way images are created and the cinematic format as potential medium to problematize, analyze and question the status of the image.

Her interests includes formal experimentation of documentary image making, with special focus on what happens behind the camera, the camera movement, and cinematic language.
Next to her practice, Silvia Ulloa is developing herself as a cinematographer.

As a bookseller at the EYE Filmmuseum, she aims for a range of books that displays cinema in its splendid diversity.
