The Graphic Art of Harry Potter exhibition is now open to the public, showcasing designs featured in the Harry Potter films, by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, all of which are available as limited edition art prints.
They include graphics from the Quidditch World Cup Poster, wizarding newspaper The Daily Prophet, the Electric Shock Shake practical joke sold at Fred and George Weasley’s shop in Diagon Alley and the bright designs from the Bang Bang Boggart Banger rocket from the Explosive Enterprises line by Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.
“We’ve been given a fantastic opportunity to show the visual props we originally created on the film set and have now reproduced as collectible artworks. Visitors to the exhibition can expect to see around 70 original artworks as well as a display of our eclectic inspiration – from books to ephemera – the world of MinaLima Studios,” explained Eduardo Lima from MinaLima Studios.
