If you have been to Shopper’s Stop on Linking Road but haven’t stopped by Mario Miranda Gallery, time to rethink priorities.
Did You Know That Mumbai Has Its Own Mario Miranda Art Gallery?
What Makes It Awesome
Mario Miranda is an emotion and one of the greatest legends of our time. His cartoon and illustrations speak of issues, culture and more with a certain warmth and humour. That’s what makes Miranda immortal in our hearts. With the aim of informing more people about his work, we decided to check out the Mario Gallery, situated on Linking Road. The gallery is a walk-in kiosk right outside Shopper’s Stop. You can find Mario’s framed art in various sizes (starting INR 400), printed mugs, greeting cards (INR 30 onward) and T-shirts (INR 750). We love the tall greeting cards that depict city life and its absurdity. Once you walk in, it’s difficult to get out without buying something. Key chains are charming, greeting cards prod you to think and art prints are endearing.
Mario Miranda is a name you will often hear when people talk about cartoonists. His legacy lives on with the gallery and we’re glad that it exists and is approachable.If you've got friends who appreciate the quirky side of life, make sure they visit this gem in the city.
