Spring is around the corner, flowers play a huge part in Spring, I paint flowers and enjoy the stunning view of blooming flowers, during the Spring season.

I love flowers, but not gardening I have tried to, believe me, read all the books and watched all the garden 'How to shows',  but it's just scary.

I just don't possess green fingers! and the nurturing of plants is just not in me. 


I decided to get myself, a garden this spring and a gardener to go with it.

I waited patiently, the other day for him to leave for work so I could take a picture of one of the beautiful well nurtured flower arrangements or I what do I call it? in his front garden.

His little pooch was barking its head off, I just was determined to take a picture and create a series of Ink paintings of the same flower. 

That is the only way, I will stop staring at his flowers, every time I walk past his front yard.

ABSTRACT ART BLOG, UNINTENDED ART ON A PLATE



Mixed Media Abstract Art, on a plate by Miabo Enyadike


Art on a plate is one project I enjoyed working on. I always love to work on new surfaces and experience new ideas.

Mixed Media Abstract Art, on a plate by Miabo Enyadike


These paintings done on plates with a textured background were inspired by the texture that is found on old decaying buildings falling apart.

 These buildings, have this fascinating  
 mixture of different layers of paint mixed with damp wallpaper, and peeling walls.

 I am into old buildings, they are intriguing and fascinating to me.

 Last week, I visited a 120yr old building and the texture and patina on the zinc shed in the yard, with different shades of reds and browns was really rich.

The main house was once a small manor and the same could be said for the walls, for there were layers and layers

 of a peeled surface, each showing coats of paint, mixed with wallpaper installed by previous inhabitants of the property.

While others that were present, saw decay and sighed, I saw unintended Art in the making and I love that.

WALL ART, VINTAGE PARIS DIY DECOR BY MIABO ENYADIKE

WALL ART, VINTAGE PARIS DIY DECOR BY MIABO ENYADIKE


Wall Art and craft projects on plates are rare for me, it is not that I don't enjoy creating plate projects, they are just far and in-between other Art things I'm doing.

 Having said that, I love mod podge projects on plates, I see these plate surfaces as a ceramic canvas. 



And this simple Art project is about Paris and my memories of all things vintage.

 I decided to create decoupage on this subject, using old porcelain plates, mod podge and free printables from Pinterest.

I set out to the flea market, with one purpose, it was different this time. I was in the lookout, for vintage crockeries plain and simple.

Something I could use to re-purpose with mod podge and some free vintage printables I had just obtained.




The plate hunting turned out great, and I decided a rather dusty, vintage very very worn out look, would suit my project.






I chose Paris, as my underlining subject, in both a subtle and bold way to create a vintage Paris travel adventure.



 One I know, I had undertaken myself visiting markets, old Chateaus, Art galleries, and street markets.....

 I simply told a story about my impression of all the historic places I visited with the help of free printables and mod podge......ENJOY.

ARTIST, 5 OTHER WAYS TO PROMOTE YOUR ART ! by MIABO ENYADIKE

ARTIST, 5 OTHER WAYS TO SELF PROMOTE YOUR ART SUCCESSFULLY! BY MIABO ENYADIKE

Art is truly in the eyes of the beholder, people tend to make a decision to buy your art after several views that is the way it works.  For some fewer views and they buy while for others several views before a collector purchase.

                   Abstract Flower Painting, Wall Art,  by Miabo Enyadike



The reason for these disparities are sometimes, name recognition could prompt a quick purchase or good presentation of your Art could be a factor.

 While on the other hand poor presentation, costing, need, and relevance could lead to delays. The issues here are relative, there is no quick magic to sell your Art, you just have to put it out there for people to see and decide for themselves.



 I have been fortunate to be in the Art business for over 20 years, so I have a bit of experience on how it goes, the disappointments and the highs work hand in hand with Artist and their Artworks, you just have to be dug in and reinvent yourself in order to remain relevant to your collectors and patrons.



So I have decided, to share the five go-to ways I use to self promote my Art and rein in the sales.


1.
Have Your Social Media Accounts do the Talking for You

Yes, you read well, allow your social media accounts to do the talking for your Art. Create Art accounts that speak about your Artworks, post constantly and tell stories around your Art that are compelling and fun that will draw in the audience and turn them into them into collectors.



I have created my accounts and I post constantly on a daily basis about my Artworks because that is my content that I share to a targeted audience.



I totally share my Art, on my social media pages constantly these platforms create for me an audience that view and follow what I do.

Facebook Instagram

Twitter

Blogger Pinterest


2.  Host Art Parties:
I love Art parties they are intimate and informal, it could be your birthday or you can create an event and let your guest know, that it is all about celebrating your new Artworks.



 Provide good food and drinks create an informal ambiance, that makes your artworks the center of discussion







3.  Show Friends and Family What  You Do:
This is displaying your art in a rather informal setting. Invite family and friends and explain to them what your artwork is all about.



 Art is word of mouth, they may not collect your work personally, but trust me they will talk about you and your artwork, and sometimes they help you spread it on social media and that can lead to sales.

4.   Create Workshops, Webinars, for Your Peers:
Everyone loves something that has meaning and impacts their lives. It could be workshops, webinars, and courses that help people.


As an Artist, it is a way for me
to self-promote my artworkIt is also all about helping other artists achieve the same success.

5.  Solo Exhibitions Via Collaborations:
Solo exhibitions are great but they entail a lot of money and most Artist cannot afford this. For me, I love solo exhibitions, that way my artwork gets all the attention and I can focus on selling to potential collectors. 








The collaboration in this context is asking friends or family members who have influence and are in certain circles that can pull in the right crowd, to be part sponsors and you share a decent percentage of your sales with them.





These five ways are my own tried and tested ways that yielded good Art sales for me. I know there are other creative ways out there but at least, I have shared mine. ......Enjoy.

GUIDE TO MARKETING YOUR ART COURSE, BY MIABO ENYADIKE

Artist Guide Course On How To Market Your Art Online.


Introduction
The artist is one with a vivid imagination, a complex, yet beautiful and intense mind.

 

 
       
 Our ability to observe and translate events, objects, humanity, lifestyle, and pain that we see around us, into a gift that is shared and received by all who see it and term it  'Creativity' is what oils our artistic wheels to keep moving.

 Facilitator: Joan +27 83 703 8070

It encourages us, artist, to keep on creating and expanding our gift, to the delight of our Audience.
What comes in between this creativity, is how the artist suffers in the name of their craft.

I know that because I have been there. It was difficult to get any gallery representation, for years I relied on friends heavily to buy my works because my Art style was misunderstood.
I basically create abstract Art with objects and my paintings are mostly Ink based on paperboards. It was really a financial burden to carry on working when no one around me was buying. So when the online selling platforms came on, I knew I had to get on board if I was to keep creating Art.





I joined the internet in 2013, opening my Art blog on blogger, I posted my first blog on bottles I had made and simply described how I made them and the views from people were staggering and the rest is history.



Today I sell via my blog and I have created a successful Art business, just by storytelling my Art, my own way without boundaries and reaping the full benefits of my hard work, as an independent unrepresented Artist.




 I know the difficulty it entails to put this beauty, created by us called Artworks, out there best paintings, sculpture, graphics, fashion, pottery or ceramics, photography etc and be taken seriously by galleries, markets, dealers, collectors etc.....is a huge, if not a herculean task to bear.

 That brings me to the issue, of the Internet and the artist. The Internet has created a platform for the artist that could be far-reaching than we artist anticipate.
 An artist can make a living by the side, regardless of brick and mortar or huge financial commitment, just by uploading and clicking.  Whilst waiting for the big break, we all dream about and desire.

The Internet at least is on the side of the artist, the reason I say so is from my own experience.



  
That is why I have created this six weeks course, here in Johannesburg for unrepresented Artist. So join me for this course and learn how to represent yourself and earn the money you deserve.

You will learn:


-  Week 1: Understanding Digital Space

-  Week 2: Crafting your Product name and Story 

-  Week 3: Creating your Brand Personality

-  Week 4:  Inbound Marketing

-  Week 5:  How to Sell Online

-  Week 6:  Physical Presentation of your Art
