MY PREFERRED GARDEN IS IN A VASE; ABSTRACT ART BY MIABO ENYADIKE






                       FLOWERS IN A VASE.


My birthday was last week and as usual, I was looking forward to my favourite bunch of beautiful, well cut Tulip flowers, from my husband.



You know the kind that you arrange, in a vase and put water in it....... well that was not to be. 


Instead I received 24 pots of planted Tulips and a message attached, Happy birthday dear, It's time you have your own Tulip garden.




TULIP PLANTS



What, I said,." My preferred garden is in a vase". 


The one that does not need tending or planting, then watering and nurturing.





 FLOWERS IN A VASE



What about my 7yr old playing his football around that area I asked? wondering how on earth this is going to work. 

Anyway, not one to be let down, I planted the Tulips. 





THATS ME, PLANTING THE TULIPS



Then I decided to paint me, my flowers in vases, at least to compensate for my disappointment.




         FLOWERS IN A VASE



Showing, just how I prefer my Garden.





 FLOWERS IN A VASE






 FLOWERS IN A VASE



ENJOY.

MY SOUND OF MUSIC INSPIRED FASHION; ART AND DESIGN BY MIABO ENYADIKE



last month while cleaning my Art studio, I discovered a "Sound of Music" movie dvd, I bought  for my kids a long time ago. 

It was nostalgic, looking at the dvd cover with Maria on it. I decided to watch it later, again for the 100th time.


  




Anyway, the thought of using the flowery green curtains, to create a line of play clothes for the captains kids was genius!.







Just imagine the foresight, and the design been thought out by maria, for each child.







What about the fittings, sizes, measurement, pattern and easy to wear, for all those children. 








It was fantastic!. The play clothes fashion highlight, for me was the little Pinafore shorts, made for one of the boys how hilarious and well thought out. 










Then I had my "Aha moment". 

I thought to myself, I should create an inspired version. 

I decided to use all the flowery, curtain fabric off cuts, I have and just have fun with it.

Armed with fabric off cuts, cardboard, copic markers and glue.






I created my own fashion interpretation,with what can be done with excess fabric or cut offs.
-Decor accessories,decor bottles for instance  

Also, decor vases could be made.

A simple fashion line can be created.

A soft toy line, for kids can be created.

Tote bags and purses could be made, from any fabric cut off.
  
-Napkins,table runners or framed fabrics all come in handy with fabric cut offs.

The list just goes on and on.

For me, I was trying to capture a moment of pure genius, by the creators of this movie and the nanny maria. 

Hoping to create, an Art installation with it. 

Referencing, the outfits worn during the sing along scene; 
"Do re mi fa so la ti do" in one of the most joyful and ridiculously fun moment,on any movie I have watched. 

The movie Sound of Music....Enjoy.

ENTANGLED BOWLS TO PENDANT LIGHTS. ART AND CRAFT BY MIABO ENYADIKE



Remember my blog in May? 



    ENTANGLED BOWLS;PLASTIC BAG AND ROPES;2015 MIABO ENYADIKE



The bowls I created, to mirror my very hectic work schedule, after a health scare? anyway that blog was published in May 2015.







The point I am making, is I have turned those same bowls, to pendant lights. 






I knew in me, that they were more than display bowls. 







Don't get me wrong, they are good as bowls or display ornaments, but I wanted a more desirable function and purpose for them.







I teamed up with my electrician, who has worked with me, on a lot of projects and always thinks,







 I am crazy and we made cool pendant lights, out of these bowls. 








I wanted them colorful, hence the colored cords.








 I left the extra cords,instead of reducing them because I am a restless woman, I could take them down next month or sell them. 








It is a gallery and all Items are sell-able, I don't need any complications simple!.






 So I present to you my entangled pendant lights.....Enjoy.

PLAYING WITH COLOURS; ABSTRACT ART BY MIABO ENYADIKE.



I love colours, I mean bold and bodacious colours. They inspire me and make me wonder.




PLAYING WITH COLOURS; ABSTRACT ART BY MIABO ENYADIKE;2014


One of the reasons, I love being a fine Artist, is simply the amount of colours at our display and just how, we can use them to tell a story.
