The Art of Harry Potter

Blonde In Grey - The Art of Harry Potter (23)

The award-winning MinaLima studio has opened a wondrous exhibition and shop on Greek Street that any true fan of Harry Potter won’t want to miss.

Showcasing fifteen years of creative collaboration in graphic design the House of MinaLima boasts four floors showcasing three distinctive collections. The MinaLima Own Collection and the Woop Studios Collective Nouns Series are fabulous…but the real draw are the Harry Potter art prints.

The exhibition features graphic designs from the Harry Potter films by design duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, reproduced as limited edition art prints which are available for purchase.

The exhibition also has original film props from the movies which are on loan from the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, Leavesden. It’s amazing to see the detail and artistry of these beautiful one of a kind pieces!

The top floor showcases the spectacular, detailed covers for the books that appeared in the films. If only you could actually buy the books that fill the pages inside!
