MY ART EXHIBITION (PUTING MY ART OUT THERE) BY MIABO ENYADIKE

My recent Art Exhibition was somewhat different from all the past ones.One it was solo and self sponsored.It was not in a studio or Art gallery but in a good friends restaurant.





 I needed to present my work in a rather unconventional and a very relaxed way where people felt relaxed and out to enjoy themselves.


I chose my birthday day which was in July for the event.



MIABO AND HER HUSBAND CUTTING THE BIRTHDAY CAKE.
     
 The curating of the work, was done by me because I wanted people to see it as part of the event, rather than the event itself.




 That way they don't feel intimidated, as this was not a very large space and people knew each other kind of. There was good food, good music vibe with a DJ on hand and drinks. Fantastic evening to say the least.




My work was put out there and people kind of danced their way to them discussing, commenting, commissioning and buying that was fun.Everyone had a fun Friday night, leaving in the wee hours of the morning.




 I truly enjoyed myself, promised to deliver purchased works for free, met new patrons and was just totally grateful it all turned out well.




One thing was obvious my exhibition was subtle and almost pedestrian, but people were comfortable and intimate, didn't feel out of place and paid for what they truly loved.Also for some of the guest, it was just a way of supporting my efforts........ENJOY.

WHEN CRAFT BECOMES ART, THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY BY MIABO ENYADIKE

I create craft of all kinds, for a living.Lately I decided that the pictures of these craft pieces, make good photography after framed pictures of my craft, sold at par with the actual craft itself.



  Love glass beads framed photo

That informed my decision, to always take good photographs of any craft I make.




Painted stones photo


 Armed with my amateur photography skills and camera,this creates for me a complete different Art.




Decor bottle photo

 These are some of my crafts that have become Art photography.

MORE BOTTLES I LOVE (DECORATING USED BOTTLES) BY MIABO ENYADIKE


There is no doubt in my mind that I have a rather strange affinity to used glass bottles or vases.



                 VINTAGE BOTTLES

I just love them, to say I love used bottles can never be overemphasized,


          ANTIQUE BOTTLE

 my early morning long walks is partially based on discovering at  least one beautiful bottle tossed away waiting for me to claim it.


GREEN ROPED BOTTLE

 I could go on and on about used bottles and the joy, I derive from turning them into something useful and special with a new purpose. 


           VICTORIAN BOTTLES 

I'd rather  share some of  these used bottles that  I have collected and crafted into decor pieces with you,



FESTIVITY BOTTLE


and hope you enjoy viewing them. 



FAUX FUR BOTTLE




SPLASH OF COLOUR BOTTLE





BLUE OCEAN BOTTLE





RED CRACKED BOTTLE

WORKING WITH OLD NEWS PAPERS

 I love to use old news papers for art purposes, the possibilities are enormous.
That is because they could be incorporated into design and used in creating all kinds of art and craft. 


            

         MOTHER AND CHILD

 They also serve as Art media, with a very distinct background or base to work on.





                 ART POSTER

These are some of the art and designs, I have made with the use of old newspapers.


I'm sure out there, are more wonderful art done with old newspapers,

                         


                ART POSTER

      please make your comments and share photos of your newspaper art and craft with me, thanks and .....Enjoy.                                                  MIABO

MY FAVOURITE DENIM PANTS (DENIM VASES AND ORNAMENTS) CRAFTS BY MIABO ENYADIKE


I love denim wear, dresses, pants, shorts, jackets and so on. Don't we all, love the way we look in jean pants? yes we all do, at least I know I do. 




DENIM PANTS ABOUT TO BE ORNAMENTS


Don't we all, miss that one particular jean pants? that the fit and feel of it on our bodies is so damn good.



        DENIM VASE OR ORNAMENT

 When at the end of so much wear and tear we had to succumb to letting it go.........hmm how painful was that?.




                 JEAN VASE

 The difficult task we face, to really find one like that particular one is daunting.




           DENIM VASE OR ORNAMENT

For me I never let go of any favourite jean pants, because there isn't much left of the jean pants, after I have worn the life out of it. Its quite embarrassing, to even drop it of as a donation to charity.





                      
                  JEAN ORNAMENT

 I knew they where piling up, I had to do something about this pile of old favourite jean pants.




                                        DENIM DRESS COLLAGE

 Then it hit me, I could preserve them in a way that they could be with me for much longer.




                  JEAN ORNAMENT

 I thought, I could give them a new lease of life, turn them into Art pieces and give them out as gifts. Put them up for sale in charity auctions and have people enjoy my precious favourite jeans.






                  JEAN VASE

 Also have little chits chats around them too. Share and show them to people at least. That way they are some how still with me and maintain there position as my favourite jeans..........Enjoy.
