This time around for me it was different. 

I saw quite a lot of interesting scenery, on the way to pretoria and I told myself, on my way back I'll take some photos with my smart phone.

THE THOUGHTS OF MAN' ABSTRACT ART BY MIABO ENYADIKE



This is one of those issues that we pray, we don't have to have a conversation about.It is so disturbing and most of us, cannot comprehend why or how. 





    THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO       ENYADIKE.



Thoughts of mayhem or destruction to humanity, is conceived by man,
is simply what this painting is all about.





  THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO  ENYADIKE.



The colours I used, to represent emotions running through in the artwork, are simply colours I love to work with.

I am equally certain, these colours could be deciphered
in one of the medical clinics, in Harley street London, with the right amount of money of course!
just kidding. 




     
THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO         ENYADIKE.


The painting for me, tries to process how evil thoughts, are conceived in the heads or minds of mankind.


How people wake up in the morning and watch their own citizens, brothers, sisters, people in general, go through hell and back just to satisfy their 
personal urge.

Whatever the reasons, behind the heinous crimes they commit in the name of religion, race,anger, poverty, is baffling and deeply troubling.





    THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO        ENYADIKE.




These crimes are committed, without any thought of the repercussions. 





  THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO       ENYADIKE.



History, has taught us all, over and over again that villains never win, regardless of how masterful there plans are they always get what they deserve at the end.

When my dad, was shot at his home one evening, by a band of armed robbers who were on a random robbery spree, my poor dad suffered for years, from those horrific gunshot injuries.

He eventually died of his injuries, a shadow of his former himself. 





  THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO        ENYADIKE.


That was when it occurred to me, that these senseless shooting or mass killings, has nothing to do with a victim being good or bad.






   THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO         ENYADIKE.




It only went further to affirm, the fact evil has no friend or sympathy not for any gender, religion, race or reason. 






  THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO       ENYADIKE.




It just lurks in a corner and targets people, but it all starts in the thoughts of man, for it is written in the bible 
AS  A  MAN THINKETH  IN  HIS HEART  SO  IS  HE; PROV 27;3.

I was particularly moved, by an event that happened recently here in Johannesburg, a rugby teacher and his friend were brutally murdered and drowned.

And their companions raped and attacked  whilst taking an innocent stroll in the park.

 One wonders how a man's thought, can switch so fast as to inflict so much pain, on a fellow man that you have never met before.

A person that did you no harm, if these thoughts of evil, have not been rehearsed over and over again in their hearts........

No matter how isolated the incident, or massive, it is distressful and full of pain.

Looking at the world today and the the horrifying events, conceived by the thoughts of man, I always ask these questions;





    THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO          ENYADIKE.




1. who on this earth has been promised tomorrow? not the victim or the assailant, neither the mastermind of evil or the millions of people, that have fallen prey to their evil plans. 


2. Why would anyone or people, conceive so much evil in their hearts and carry it out, with all intentions to kill, steal and destroy? 





    THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO        ENYADIKE



This is a world, that Alexander the Great, conquered with so much genius and yet died of high fever in his early 30's. 

Ironically in a city he had conquered, Babylon in the palace of  King Nebuchadnezzar another evil mastermind.

 His military feat, has never being replicated by anyone and will never be.





   THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO         ENYADIKE



 These events should teach us lessons, that their is a higher power and the decision, is solely  HIS!, to decide how long evil is to reign.

"The thoughts of Man" will not have it!, every decade someone new thinks up a new ideology or plan to conquer the world, his community, society or religion in the hope of changing the world into his own  ideology why?.






  THE THOUGHTS OF MAN;ABSTRACT ART;INK ON PAPERBOARD;2015 MIABO        ENYADIKE.




We all know that the world, is bigger than one person or a group of people that history will never stop repeating itself simply because of "THE THOUGHTS OF MAN"...

ROPE AS A MEDIUM IN ART AND CRAFT ; ART AND CRAFT MIABO ENYADIKE

I love to create Art and craft with ropes, and I really enjoy it.

 After a delightful discovery of a store selling off  its craft supplies, including a large stash of cotton ropes, at a ridiculous closing down price, I was hooked and decided to have all the ropes.

I had no idea what to do with them and kept them for a year and half and later re-discovered them,in a box in my studio.

 I was drawn, into a frenzy of crafting these ropes into anything, I thought was possible for me to create.

I decided to to take a break, from painting and concentrate on roping something!





         Entangled rope pendant light by miabo enyadike


I crocheted bags, baskets, made entangled rope pendant lights.


Then I created baskets, with the aid of plastic molds and just had fun with them.
