MinaLima Exhibit to Open in London!

It’s fair to say that Harry Potter films as we know them would not have been nearly so magical if it weren’t for the graphic design work of MinaLima, whose imaginative and breathtaking designs also added life and color to the Wizarding World we love. Now, Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima have an exhibition of their work opening at a gallery in London!

The exhibit, which will run from November 30 to December 19, will be housed at the Coningsby Gallery and will feature props from the films displayed alongside some of the most iconic pieces of MinaLima’s work. From the press release:

Visitors can immerse themselves in the visual world of Harry Potter, examining details of the artworks as they were originally created for the films. The exhibition will show the development of the designs through the films, with artworks displayed chronologically. Authentic film props will also be on display, kindly on loan from the Warner Bros. Studio Tour–Leavesden.

Some editions are embellished with hand[-]finished metallic foiling. Artworks can be purchased either framed or unframed at the exhibition and can be shipped worldwide.

The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter Films

‘The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter Films’ exhibition from design studio MinaLima opens Monday 30th November at The Coningsby Gallery, Fitzrovia. This exhibition showcases graphic designs from Warner Bros. Pictures’ Harry Potter films by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, reproduced as limited edition art prints which will be for sale.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the visual world of Harry Potter, examining details of the artworks as they were originally created for the films. The exhibition will show the development of the designs through the films, with artworks displayed chronologically. Authentic film props will also be on display, kindly on loan from the Warner Bros. Studio Tour–Leavesden.

As the designers of the Marauder’s Map, The Daily Prophet and every other graphic prop in the film series, Miraphora and Eduardo have an exceptional and passionate understanding of the Harry Potter films.

Each of the artworks was originally designed on the film set at Leavesden Film Studios between 2002 and 2010. With the designs being an integral part of the storytelling, MinaLima’s attention to detail is paramount in their work.

Much historical research and experimentation with techniques is employed, from finding the perfect ageing effects to scanning old typefaces and peculiar surfaces to enrich their visual reference library. Since finishing on the films and founding their design studio in 2009, MinaLima have continued their involvement in the Harry Potter franchise with the design of various publications and collections (such as ‘Harry Potter: Film Wizardry’ from Insight Editions, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s ‘Harry Potter Wizards’ Collection’). They also spent two years designing the street and store graphics for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort, which opened on July 8, 2014. To this day, MinaLima’s creative alliance with the Wizarding World continues to flourish.

All printed in England, the prints use pigment inks on 300gsm Hahnemuhle fine art paper. Each print is edition numbered and embossed, and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Some editions are embellished with hand finished metallic foiling. Artworks can be purchased either framed or unframed at the exhibition, and can be shipped worldwide.

Also for sale at the exhibition will be Hogwarts prop replica notebooks and postcard sets from MinaLima’s collection.
