RE- WRITING THE TIMES BY MIABO ENYADIKE



These days, all I read in the news papers on a daily basis, can be summed up into three parts; Finance, then horrific stories of mans inhumanity against man, or lifestyle.




THE MISSING CHILDREN.


This informs my decision, on many aspects of our lives, in this world that we live in.It then goes, on to determine what we think and how we live.I have  read the same news paper brand for years, and that particular brand of news paper, is what I read everyday and at the end of reading it, I am filled with mixed feelings.




SUDANESE WOMAN

sit and wonder, about  everything life, I try to process the events, I have just read in my mind, some of them are so heart breaking. It makes me wonder, how these things could even be conceived let alone allowed to happen.





THE RELIEVED MOTHER


As an artist, each day I try to replay these events differently in my mind, giving it a face, in order for me to fully understand, or even come to terms with some of these events, that have taken place, and is being brought to our attention daily.



 THE BEREAVED MOTHER.

I have made quite a few of these stories, that you and  I  have read in the papers, in some way, into drawings.



     
     THE AGEING FASHIONISTA

 These drawings, are mixed media, and were made with charcoal and acrylic, on the financial pages of my daily news paper. I did that because finance,  plays a huge part in these events that happen in our lives.





LIFESTYLE.

 I have depicted these events, in a Cartoony and rather Pedestrian way. This is for us all, to comprehend how these events, have truly in some way changed our perception about life. Finally for me its all about re-writing the TIMES with ART. ENJOY

FOR THE LOVE OF ART BY MIABO ENYADIKE






 ABSTRACT ART WITH BOTTLES.


 My undying love for all things Art, is what amazes me and truly moves my passion to be more edgy and creative.

I love, all things art and I mean all things art, music, poetry, design, fashion, books, movies, architecture, a beautiful shop window display, craft, sculpture and even a well presented meal,a good flower arrangement, e.t.c anything that shows creativity to me is Art.





                  MIXED MEDIA WITH OLD NEWSPAPER.


               My latest obsession, with up cycle art is unnerving, but I like being on the Art edge.




                           ABSTRACT ART WITH MILK CANS


 The adrenalin rush, that comes with an idea and the possibility to express this idea, in any medium of art is an exciting reward, that I always look forward too.






        OLD  DENIM PANTS TURNED INTO AN ART OBJECT


               This time around, I have put together a few of the art, I have made in moments of art madness, using all kinds of mediums  and materials around the house, to create Art and Craft that I love.                                              ENJOY!

CHRISTMAS GIFT TAGS ON MY MIND BY MIABO ENYADIKE





     Right now, I am listening to Georgia on my mind by Ray Charles, and wondering how I will cope with all the Christmas markets, out there in Johannesburg, that I have to set up stalls in, and how I intend to cope with making all the little arts and craft bits that would be displayed in these stalls.




Maybe, I should  focus on Christmas greetings, this time around, instead of making a variety of gift items. As I listen to the song, and hear Ray Charles, sing it from the heart,




 with such passion, and sincerity, resting his focus only on Georgia nothing else, there is this calm resolve in me, to just focus on the one true Christmas passion I have, which is  the Christmas gift tags that I make.                                          




      Over the years, when I make these Christmas gift tags, I usually embellish them over the top with all sorts of embellishments, 


                                    and they sell very quickly and they are used  not only to accompany gifts, but for other things like bookmarks, name tags and table setting, etc.




This year, it is a bit different for me, I just want them to be simple, elegant, and easy on the eyes. Listening to Ray Charles,



 
sing about Georgia, in such a simple yet elegant and sophisticated  way, and  how the entire song comes 
together,



                      
 is just what I need to apply in this years Christmas tags.I have just made a few, I still have a huge pile to finish.


  
 I am alright with that, I know everything will be smooth sailing,
          

because right now I have Christmas on my mind. ENJOY...
