Meet The Artist

Thank you for taking the time to view my chosen selections of personal Art & Illustrations

When presented with the opportunity to exhibit these works I was hesitant, as they were created simply for myself, for my own fulfillment, and never really intended for presentation or reproduction. So, with these series, you are getting a minuscule glimpse inside my private collection of thoughts and sketches, of which there are literally thousands! As a classically trained Medical Illustrator, architect designer and engineer, my work is often tight and precise, so when I relax and draw for myself I usually escape to the sea, to warm sandy beaches and the creatures of the coast. You will find examples of "soft architecture" in the OCTO Series, discover tactile excitement of blending lithe bodies with soft organic materials in my Mushroom Girls & Feminine Forms Series. My unusual take on transport and utilitarian structures is played out in the Machinery Series with more series to follow as I cull from my stacks of drawings. We have but scratched the surface, and will be adding fresh, original, fun art.

My artwork is all hand-crafted in traditional mediums such as pencil, pen, paint brush, acrylics, airbrush and such, so when you look at my work you will find all the anomalies and the line work, the sketch marks, the rendered forms and alterations that are used in their creation. These features are the life of the drawing, the musings of the artist, and the marks of craftsmanship. They are imperfect, like the artist himself, and are fueled by his imagination. I would love to hear how it makes you feel!

Custom illustrations & artwork for any purpose, including prints, murals, corporate and personal events, book illustrations & more can be commissioned.

Classically trained with over 40 years of professional expression, Maggio's illustrations are all hand-drawn and bear the mark of true craftsmanship, both in the mediums and the original design perspective. Enjoy!

As artists create we often wonder how our visions and ideas will be received by the viewers we hope to please. With these Collections I simply put out some of what I personally love, and hope it brings you joy in displaying it.

One of the most amazing artists I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! I’m so excited to see this on Facebook. His artwork is beautiful in pictures – but even more phenomenal in person.

Andrea Malzahn

Oh man. Where do I begin? Not only is this artist INSANELY talented, but he is also such a kind person. We have some of his art hanging in our home and everyone who has come over admires his work. 100% recommend.

About The Art

All prints are created on a lustre-finish heavyweight photo-quality paper in a high-resolution format.This process ultimately captures the beauty of the line quality, details, and artistic subtlety. Interest in other materials and sizes can be considered but will incur associated costs in printing, additional setup fees, and delivery-time changes and must be agreed upon via contract prior. I keeping with the uniqueness of these wonderful images, the prints are true to their original intention and are available only in the colors shown. There will be subtle differences in the actual artwork, as all images & illustrations are created individually by hand! Artifacts and makers' marks will also vary from creation to creation.

To help ensure the extended brilliance and integrity of your new artworks please display them indoors only, and away from the harsh heat or direct sunlight, and avoid moist areas. Being delicate prints on paper, they are not intended for outdoor displays or damp unpredictable environments.
We are not responsible for the handling or display of these images once you have received them. Any damages occurring during storage, framing, display or handling is not covered under our liability.
