Maniac Pumpkins are locally grown in the states ,they are REAL pumpkins.Throughout each step of the creation process, the carvers take utmost care to ensure the highest quality products. Founders, Marc Evan (@marcmaniac)and Chris Soria (@chrissoria), have been collaborating creatively for over 20 years, creating all manner of artistic wonders. The roots of Maniac go back to while Marc and Chris were still in high school. Each year they spent weeks transforming a section of the school into a series of successfully terrifying Haunted Houses.
Experimenting and developing their own styles and techniques with a new art medium, Marc and Chris, began to push the boundaries of what had previously been achieved with pumpkin. Word of mouth spread about the carvings. And after a couple of very flattering stories in the press, bigger clients like the New York Yankees, Food Network and Martha Stewart began to request their services. It was then, that Maniac Pumpkin Carvers was formed with the mission of creating the best pumpkin artwork available. What started in a basement apartment has now grown to a full creative studio, with a dedicated team of talented artists and pumpkin carvers.
They now offer several services ranging from Advertising, Weddings and special occasion, Promotions, Costumes, Custom work,Works of Art,Portraits ,Special requests (carving for Museum of Modern Art, Queens Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum, and many top agencies, galleries) ,Celebrity Icons, Branding, Photography also participate in live carving events and offer special Classes to learn the trait.
