Graziano is easily one of the most controversial Italian art directors no-code, although he's possibly the least comfortable fit in border line seminal. Traditional, also trash, naïve, cult, but still very old fashion. In 1972, Graziano began to work in comics at StudiOriga in Milan.

He draws black and white pen/ink portraits: Presley, Divine, Krisma, Eva Robin's, Armani, Fiorucci, Cadinot, Sid Vicious, Pasolini, Warhol.

From 1977 to 1979 he directed the monthly magazine of underground music Gong.

In the 80's he lives in New York City, making illustrations for the Italian daily newspaper Progresso Italoamericano. Also for the chic-gay monthly Advocate, Torso, Blueboy and the weekly Screw. Origa in Milan became friends with the painter Fernando Carcupino, with him discuss a lot about erotica arts in the tavern "Risotteria".

With his partner phographer, Joe Zattere, founded fashion magazines such as Punk Artist (1979), Focus (1985), and Fumetti d'Italia (1992).
