MinaLima ‘The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter™ Films’ Exhibition Opening in London
Posted by Megs

MinaLima, the design duo known for making the graphics for the Harry Potter films, will be opening an exhibition in London showcasing their work on the films. The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter™ Films begins on November 30th and will be open until December 19th. All limited edition prints are for sale at the gallery during the exhibition. The exhibition is free to enter and will be held at the Coningsby Gallery, 30 Tottenham Street, London. More information, including opening hours, may be seen at the Coningsby Gallery website.

This exhibition showcases graphic designs from the Harry Potter films by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, reproduced as limited edition art prints which they produce from their London studio, MinaLima.

MinaLima was founded in 2009 by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima. Mira and Eduardo’s opportune meeting on the set of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets immediately forged an alliance of creativity and humour, connecting them in every design decision from then on.

Mira studied Film Design at The National Film & TV School, London, after graduating from Central Saint Martins with a degree in Theatre Design. Working in film design, Mira eventually specialised in graphic and prop design for some of cinema’s leading production designers.

Eduardo graduated in Visual Communications in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and for several years worked in editing on major Brazilian feature films. He moved to London in 2001 to enrich his professional experience, and in 2002 specialised in graphic design working on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets where he met Mira.

Mira and Eduardo spent ten years working in the art department on the Harry Potter films. As graphic designers of the Marauder’s Map, the Daily Prophet and every other graphic prop in the film series, they have an exceptional and passionate understanding of the Harry Potter films. Currently in production on the feature film of J.K. Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts’, MinaLima’s creative alliance with the Wizarding World continues to flourish.

Mira and Eduardo will be at the exhibition during weekend opening hours. Please feel free to come along and meet the faces behind the magic.
