Maurizio Gradian attended art school and the Castello Sforzesco School of Illustration and Comics. The Milanese artist began his career doing graphics and designs before starting a comics studio with Fabio Jacomelli in 1993.
Gradin and Jacomelli began their joint oeuvre with 'Doan & C:' and 'Billiband' in Intrepido magazine, and an episode of 'Hammer' for Star Comics in 1995. They began an association with Bonelli publishers that same year, where they cooperated on the artwork of 'Legs Weaver' episodes and some contributions for 'Agenzia Alfa' annnuals.
The team split up in 2000, when Gradin continued to work on 'Legs Weaver' on his own before joining the art team of 'Nathan Never'.
