CRAFT STAMPS I LOVE (ABSTRACT ART) BY MIABO ENYADIKE



This is a first for me using craft rubber stamp as a background for abstract art paintings.


                                                                                                                                                        POSTAGE
  
It really was an idea I had toyed with for a while and I finally decided to give it a go.


                               WALKING TOGETHER

 To create the background, of some of these paintings, I used  guipure lace trim and the sole of a trainer shoe as my craft stamp.



                                RAYS OF LIGHT 

 Then I used ready made stamps also for some of the paintings.




FRANTIC

Balancing the stamp and the art work to give a cohesive collaboration,



DIAMOND

 was truly exciting and opened my eyes to the huge potential craft stamps have on all media. ENJOY!

TRIBAL ART SYMBOLS (FOLK ART, ACRYLIC ON BOARD) BY MIABO ENYADIKE



                   CIRCLES, LINES, DOTS

From the Cape (South Africa) to Cairo (Egypt) I mean the entire Africa, there are traditional symbols that indicate a previous culture or people.



DOTS AND RECTANGLES

 Some of these symbols can be interpreted to mean something significant, while some are mere decorative symbols, that are still in use today for traditional ceremonies or decorative purposes.



DOTS, TRIANGLE, RECTANGLES

I have seen quite a lot of them in use as geometric designs, in African art and extended into International art as well.



                                      TRIANGLES AND DOTS

I love these symbols and have used them for a lot of my creative endeavours and these are some of them ENJOY.

SHADES OF COLORS AND LINES (ABSTRACT ART) BY MIABO ENYADIKE


     Imagine life without colour, I have tried too, but I have found it so impossible to envisage.The simple reason, is every where we turn there are colours, tones, hues and lines in such harmony.




  COLOURS AND LINES, GREEN AND RED

That was the root, for this series I have just painted.                     




 COLOURS, RAINBOW 1

The title is colours and lines, in which I decided to explore the use of  colours, creating tones and shades, using bold curvy lines to emphasis a synergy between  the two.

                                                         


 COLOURS AND LINES, PURPLE, MAGENTA

This series is one I thoroughly enjoyed creating, with the use of Ink, on gloss paper boards, drawing lines with geometric rulers create structured geometric
lines on the paintings.


               
 

                                        COLOURS, RAINBOW 2

The outcome of this combination, of simple geometric lines and subtle use of colour's, is abstract expressionism.




COLOURS AND LINES,BLUE, GREEN, YELLOW

It  turned out fantastic, easy on the eyes, yet abstract in every sense.



 COLOURS AND LINES, BLACK, RED

 I hope you will enjoy, viewing them the way I enjoyed making them........  ENJOY!
