Luis Miranda is a very important master painter from Ecuador.
Miranda was born in 1932 to Pedro Miranda Martinez and Dolores Neira Penafiel. Miranda's childhood memories were of harvesting honey from his family's many beehives, which they owned all along the route from Emplame to Guayaquil. Miranda was always drawing as a child, scribbling away on any paper that he could find and copying art from books that his mother had in the house.
Miranda finished his primary studies in River Basin, where his parents transferred to for work related reasons. Miranda later returned to the port city to attend secondary school at the School Vicente Rocafuerte. In 1950, Miranda's passion for art led him to enroll in the School of Fine Arts in Guayaquil to be mentored by Hans Michaelson and Caesar Andrade Faini.
