Mario Miranda and Goa are synonymous with each other. The iconic Goan artist, cartoonist and illustrator is famous for its illustrations of Goa, goan life among many of his works. I grew up seeing many of his cartoons on The Times of India newspaper. So when on monsoon getaway to Goa, One of the first visits I did was to the Mario Gallery in Panjim.
The Mario Gallery stocks the original print art works of Mario Miranda as also its reproductions in various items such as coasters, fridge magnets, mugs, etc. The most interesting are ofcourse the print art work, which come in various sizes. I was like a kid in Candy Store on seeing the artworks. I couldn’t decide which ones not to buy!
There are also books on Mario’s life and his art journey as well as his various art work compilations from various phases of career.
For art lovers, visit to Mario Gallery is highly recommended when in Goa.
