In Cartoons: Traveling with Mario Miranda

Mario Miranda (2 May 1926 – 11 December 2011) is undoubtedly one of India’s most loved cartoonists. His delightful artwork was the result of his careful observation of people, places, and experiences.

Miranda began his career as a cartoonist in 1953, working for the Times of India. He was later invited by 22 countries  to create illustrations and sketches! Interestingly, Mario did not formally study art. He famously attended art school classes for a day at J.J School of Art in Mumbai before deciding against it. He went on to graduate with an Honours in English.

Fun Fact: Even though he did not attend the J.J School of Art, he met his wife Habiba Hyadri at the school’s Annual Ball !

Mario Miranda loved good food (and wine). And so, in this gallery, we venture out with the legendary artist for dinner and drinks – featuring the numerous cafes, bars and restaurants that appeared in his drawings from around the world.
