Profile for Maurizio Manzieri

Maurizio Manzieri was born in Naples, an enchanting Italian harbor considered by many a paradise of art and classical culture. 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 science fiction 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 European and international publishing companies – Mondadori, Bragelonne, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Asimov's SF, Analog, ImagineFX, MacMillan, Putnam/ Berkley, PYR, Prime Books, Subterranean Press, Centipede Press. His paintings have been periodically chosen for annuals, including Spectrum, The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, and Infected by Art.
