About UsMiMa Fine Art Publishers and Gallery was established in 2005 by Mitra Ghaffari and Mark Prior in British Columbia, Canada, with the intention of bringing the finest quality of art direct to the public. This joint venture combines 40 years of experience between two internationally established artists, whose backgrounds also include publishing and gallery ownership.
At MiMa we believe fine art should be affordable and accessible to the public without compromise in quality and we present you with a variety of contemporary art works from a growing number of Canadian and international artists.
At MiMa we take responsibility for every piece of artwork from start to finish - using state of the art equipment. All limited edition prints are created in partnership with the artists, then printed, proofed and numbered by the publishers.
