MY ABSTRACT THOUGHTS BY MIABO ENYADIKE


These abstract Art on display are some of my works over the years and each work represents the way I see nature, humanity and events around me.

The impression it leaves me with, is a deciding factor, on how best to convey a story and the the subtle message it carries with it.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR ART CORE; ART BLOG BY MIABO ENYADIKE.

I have always asked myself what exactly drives my passion to create Art and Craft?. what is this driving force that makes me want to turn the usual to unusual given the time and effort required to achieve it?.

 For years I have always told myself and people that it is passion that ignites my creativity but ain't we all passionate about something or someone? yes we are sometimes briefly, other times forever.

 I decided to look inwards and really deep inside my core and it hit me the simple truth I discovered is I love creating things with my hands regardless of its appeal.

I need to do something! and thank goodness it is creativity in the form of Art. 


                       ETHNIC POTS AND POT STANDS; 2006; MIABO ENYADIKE.

This deep sense of loyalty to my creative spirit is the driving force of my passion to create Art practically with any thing I can lay my hands on.

Its been several long years away from the Art scene in my home country Nigeria in west Africa, holidaying there briefly I discovered not much has changed in terms of Art concept but a lot has changed in Pricing of Art.

People pay premium for Art and there are more collectors out there willing to patronize and commission Artist,that in itself is fantastic. 




                       STORY; NEWSPAPER ON CLAY POT; 2006; BY MIABO ENYADIKE

My last exhibition in Lagos was held in 2006 at TERRAKULTURE, the Nigeria Art Institute and it was memorable and was documented by a good friend of mine,Willem.

 I remember Artist and guest alike wondering why there where few paintings and more  decor objects.

All I wanted to achieve was simply how simple objects enhance our lives in an ethnic setting no pretence and the beauty it brings.


                            HOME; ACRYLIC ON BOARD;2006 BY MIABO ENYADIKE

 I worked with all sorts of materials for months unending to stress that point and at last it was curated in a way I thought fit.
A living room and a dinning area with my ethnic designs.

What were the reviews? don't remember! but what I do know is I was faithful to my core and my creativity,

not questioning for once how people will react to this concept just did what I knew inside me,what I saw and believed in.

And I was nominated for a Ford foundation award/grant which I was later given for contemporary Art in 2006, alongside my peers.


                            CRACKS; PAPIER MACHE POT; 2006 BY MIABO ENYADIKE

These things I have mentioned ignited a passion that drove the creative process for me.

 I enjoyed every aspect of it,I have since moved on to explore new aesthetics while remaining true to my core....and hoping that we all find what drives our passion......Enjoy
