Giada Maestra is a London based illustrator from Pordenone, Italy. 

Finding inspiration in the everyday, in the ordinary and in the unnoticed, she likes to draw people and places encountered along her way.


Body acceptance is the main topic when she represents women.

Drawing both digitally and by hand, she explores different media, privileging pencil and watercolor.

Her most recent MA project, ofthoughtsandpeople, shows beauty and contradictions, feelings and realities of the North London she’s experiencing with Covid-19.


Giada received her education between Strasbourg, Paris and Venice, where she studied Fashion Design and Multimedia Arts at IUAV. She recently graduated with an MA in Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts, University of The Arts London.
She works on private commissions together with magazines and non-profit organizations.
