Artist Showcase - Maurizio Manzieri

BACK TO INDEX

Naples (Italy), where Maurizio was born, is a beautiful city considered by many a paradise of art and classical culture. 'Almost weekly I visited ruins of ancient civilisations spread along this wonderful gulf under the shadow of a volcano' Manzieri remembers. He began his artistic career working as a graphic artist in advertising and his first editorial sale came in 1994 with a front cover for the British magazine Interzone. Today Maurizio is a professional illustrator based in Turin, who specializes in surreal worlds of the imagination. His artwork has appeared on countless covers of leading Italian and international publishing companies – Mondadori, Rizzoli and Espresso Group, Delos Books, Elara Libri, Bragelonne and overseas The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Asimov's, Putnam/ Berkley, Prime Books and Subterranean Press.

During the course of his career Maurizio has received the Europe Award, the Premio Italia (twice) and the Chesley Award conferred by ASFA, The Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. His paintings have been periodically chosen for annuals, including Spectrum, the Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, and Infected by Art.

While teaching Digital Illustration in two Italian Art Schools, iMasterart and The International School of Comics, the artist keeps expanding his collaborations in the fantastic field and has just been appointed Artist Guest of Honor for the renowned European Festival Lucca Comics & Games 2014 with a solo exhibit dedicated to The Magazine of F&SF.
