This is a project of individual search and reassessment within the artistic making, accelerated by the quarantine period, immersing in personal artistic references and in the imagetic universe contained in the 22 major arcana of the Tarot de Marseille cards. Linking each archetype with the life and work of a specific artist, from Brazil and abroad with several different languages, combining previous knowledge of this universe through studies of Jungian psychology, related to the letters. Soon after came the 56 Minor Arcana, now relating images by artists or works of various artistic languages to the Arcana. Using digital painting and collages, 78 explanatory images of each archetype emerged. Through this journey with images, the observer does not only reflect on his relationship with life, but gets to know a little about the work of other artists, through the images presented.

Innovative and unique method developed by Leonardo Miranda for learning the Tarot and its 78 cards (Major and Minor Arcana) uniting the universe of ancient Tarot archetypes with that of Art.

Through audiovisual, music, poetry and paintings, students interact with the proposed contents for the recognition of the images contained in the traditional Tarots of Marseille and Waite (among others) in their own lives, without the need to resort to an outdated form of learning. that uses only the memory, with keywords and combinations, but knowing and recognizing the archetypes through the SYNESTHESIA of the elements, they arrive at a lasting learning. 

Live classes are on the Zoom platform and are 2 hours long each.

A fully online material of all Course content is being produced to be acquired by this site soon.


DURATION: 3 months each course - 1 time/week

Good photographs don't exist because they were taken on good equipment. The photograph is taken mainly in the head of the photographer and then the realization is just a matter of technique. Combining this concept with a different look from an artist who is always restless and concerned with the issues of being, which includes the body, soul and nature as a whole, I seek in each photograph to capture the scenic essence of the moment. No matter how faithful the photograph, it will always be an interpretation of reality.

Project contemplated by the CONECTARTE II public notice - 2022



2nd book of a triology started with the book "A Deus", by me.

The story is fantastic realism and tells the life of Benzinho, a former resident of an imaginary place called Beleleu, a lost land between the beach and the mountains. This new saga takes place with the protagonist's escape from his homeland in a sudden from the world and from a greater meaning in his life. Throughout its trajectory, we review and reflect on various concepts and values that permeate our lives such as prejudice, the pursuit of happiness, violence, maturity, experience, among others. The first book in the series gave rise to a short film that participated in the 12th FESTLIP (International Festival of Portuguese Language Arts) that was seen by more than 5000 people worldwide at the beginning of the pandemic.


An audiovisual piece with the dramatized reading of this new work with interpretation by the author and other actors will be shown at the CONECTARTE II Festival, of the Nova Friburgo Department of Culture in 2022. Video editing and E-Book layout and illustration also done by the artist himself.








Project contemplated by the public notice Cultura nas Redes do  


The book and movie "Blob: The Day the Planet Changed!" by Leonardo Miranda are dedicated to young people and children.

Text created entirely at the time of social isolation and in the city of Nova Friburgo - RJ.

He poetically speaks a metaphor about this current moment marked by the coronavirus and quarantine. With lightness, he generates important conversations in the family, touching sensitively on points such as differences, prejudice, social classes and nature preservation. The book was also illustrated by author and designer Leonardo Miranda, with colorful and engaging layout making reading more enjoyable, both on tablets and cell phones, by the public of interest. Censorship is FREE for all ages.

book "the  God"


The story of Benzinho, son of a visionary alchemist in the city. Narrator of his own life in "Beleléu", which is an allegorical city in the middle of nowhere very difficult to access, where these very peculiar characters live within the universe of Fantastic Realism. Together they unravel, among other topics, reflections on prejudice, freedom, dreams and the value of art in our world. It deals with the eternal search for something that cannot be expressed or measured in its entirety, the Great Mystery, what we call God or divine in us.
