What is Your Art Style?
The Artist, especially the fine Artist is one that communicates their raw and true emotions through their work.

    Underwater Coral Reefs Series; Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard; Miabo Enyadike.

 The talent that is birth through these kinds of emotions from the Artist, is the Artwork we see them create time after time, giving it relevance regardless of their personal social status.

                                     Discover my Art in
This for me is the definition of the Art style of an Artist. 

 Consistency is key as well as fluidity, an ability to play with all mediums and still be recognizable is the defining factor of an Artist with their own style. 

                Circles of Fire; Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard; Miabo Enyadike.

This style is not a trend!  but one that is given to the Artist as a personal vision and its instructed from within, so much so that even the Artist cannot really explain, how or run away from it, but can only translate this vision into reality.

                       Chaos;Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard;  Miabo Enyadike

Some might call it talent, I might agree but from a deeper sense, I would call it a gift was given by our maker.
Every Artist has their own true individual style and this is true to them only. 

                 'Silhouette of a Woman';Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard;Miabo Enyadike.

That is why even Artist, trained in higher institutions with degrees and Artist that are self-taught really don't have any distinctions between them because the talent is talent plain and simple.

This is my personal view, don't get me wrong.  Out there, it is our style and the ability to communicate events, in a way that people can identify with.  

                  The Family; Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard; Miabo Enyadike.

While pushing boundariescreating social media awareness and consciousness that is relevant
 to our world, that matters.

                       'The Dress'; Abstract Art; Ink on Paperboard; Miabo Enyadike.

 Every other qualification becomes a bonus. I have a degree honors in Fine Applied Art since 1992, I remember how it felt like in class, I was some kind of renegade, I didn't quite 'fit in'.

I enjoyed Art classes, after all, we were left pretty much by ourselves to create Art.

                 'My Garden'; Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard; Miabo Enyadike.

 I just was not satisfied. My lecturers didn't like the way I painted or drew objects. It just didn't look like, what my other course mates were doing.

                           'Lady'; Abstract Art; Ink on Paperboard; Miabo Enyadike

 I did struggle a bit with the practical aspect of my course but excelled in Art history and every other theoretical aspect of my course outline.

Hence the reason after graduation, I worked in the oil servicing industry, abandoning my craft for a while.

                                    Discover my Art in
 I say this because there are gifted brilliant Artist out there, that may be in school or are self-taught Artist with a peculiar Art style that is different from others, my advice is simply don't give up, it is your God-given gift and style, own it and work it!

                    'I love myself'; Abstract Art;Ink on paperboard; Miabo Enyadike.

 In the time it would be relevant and catch the audience that it appeals too at the right time.

I say this because the reason there is an enduring appeal, for the works of  Picasso, Kandinsky, Warhol, Jasper Johns, Dieter Roth, Chagall, Frida Kahlo just to name a few of these calibre of Artist and all the 20th century Movements from Impressionism,Expressionism,cubism to Dada,that we have studied and come to respect and adore, is simply their style and consistent loyalty, adamant almost fanatical faithfulness, to their own peculiar genius.

Staying true to their inner vision of how they see the world, from within their soul.
From a fresh perspective, communicating it, in a way that allows the audience to explore  and enmesh, themselves in their world with them.

The peculiar style of the Artist will always come first, in the way we tell our story and the medium  in which it is communicated is our style as Artists.

It is what we have, it is our brand message.
It is what we sell, the technique we use and how it is applied is our formula for distinction.

                 Flower arrangement; Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard;Miabo Enyadike

I know I can speak for myself as an Artist, it took me time to come into my own style finally staying true to my vision.

Now for me it is not about other excellent Art or Artist out there, but to admire and be encouraged by the work done by these brilliant minds. 

Mother and Child fleeing Conflict Series; Abstract Art; Ink on Paper board; Miabo Enyadike

Whilst been grateful that I also have a vision and a dream, that can be translated into something that is tangible and appreciated, no matter the size of the audience or the platform.

I enjoy painting abstract silhouettes especially faces.The simple reason is I can manipulate the profile of an individual, with several layers of color.

 Color for me is an integral part of my art aesthetics I allow color to lead my creative process in the way I see the art I am about to create.

                          Silhouette of a woman; Abstract Art; by miabo enyadike.
My Art this week is all about using colors to create a simple silhouette, of a woman and a man.When I decided to create this particular art, it was more of emphasis on color than on the human profile.
                     Saatchiart/artmiabo SHOP HERE

I wanted to see what the outcome of the creative process would look like. 

Also to see if and when the human features are covered in colors, other than our natural colors would this Art evoke any emotions?... that simply belies the fact, that color seems to be one the many problems we have in our society.....just saying.

                           Silhouette of a man; Abstract Art; by miabo enyadike

This time I painted not in my favorite medium, Ink on paper board but another medium I enjoy sometimes, acrylic on wood board.
Phone Cases

I wanted very bold and color popping Art because I love bold colors and have previously done soft silhouettes with Ink
The paintings are abstract Art and have a rhythm of colors running through the entire faces of the man and woman representing their thoughts and ours maybe?

What can we do, with empty bottles?
What kind of bottles, do we find laying around our homes, the areas we reside in and our work place.

Throw them away or maybe,turn them into valuable pieces, making them useful again.

At any given time,we have bottles lying around our homes and we have cause to throw them away.

What if you don't throw them away,
or don't let them, become part of the refuse or garbage.

Some people will argue, that they clog or clutter and litter your space.
That they have become part of the reason, why our environment has become endangered.

Now, this does not sound attractive, so what can we do about them? or
what can we do with them?
How can used bottles, enhance our lives financially or otherwise?.

The reality is they can!. 
1.They could be turned into functional pieces like decor pieces, flower vases,accessories.

They could be made over, into stylish aesthetic pieces, that add to collectibles.

 And maybe, the missing link to a fabulous living space.

2.A recycling business could be borne out of bottles, basically collecting empty bottles from eateries, homes, business premises for free or for a token fee. 

And reselling to businesses who need these bottles.

3.As an Artist,I run an art studio that incorporates bottles into it's design aesthetics. SAATCHIART.COM/ARTMIABO  SHOP HERE

It is different for me and truly rewarding, because the possibilities are endless.

So welcome to my amazing world, of empty bottles......

           The Entanglement;Abstract Art;Rope plate

After a recent health scare, I was told by my physician,  to take it easy and reduce my workload. 

I was a bit confused, by my doctor's advice........ hello! what planet is he from.

The Entanglement;  Abstract Art; Rope  plate sculpture; 2015; Miabo Enyadike

I am a fine artist, we are the most laid back people on this planet, free spirited and without barriers. 
We are stuck, in a world we have created, for ourselves outside the existing one we all live in.

Some of us fine or visual artist, belong to era's long gone and live that way, in present times without a care in the world. 
The Entanglement;  Abstract Art; Rope   bowl 

I for one is stuck in the 1980's, I listen to 80's singer Evelyn king, 'love come down' and Kool and the Gangs,'get down on it' every day,  it's part of my daily routine, how cool is that! 

Having said all that, I knew my doctor, only meant well and just wanted me well rested and less stressed, before my next visit.

I knew deep down, that he was right because I'd become entangled, in too many activities and have not had a break, in a long while.

The Entanglement; Abstract Art; Rope bowl 

There is always something new to do,adding to my long list of work, and activities.
Sometimes I wonder, how in heaven's name, I created the time, for some of them that are so exhausting and unnecessary. 

The Entanglement; Abstract Art; Rope bowl 

I decided to turn this period of rest,to reflect on life and how we get ourselves entangled, in all sorts of activities.  

Good or bad, in anticipation of a result, that reflects the reason we got entangled in the first place.
                         Saatchi art/artmiabo

As an Artist, the only way I could answer for myself and take responsibility, to reduce my workload was to translate my rather hectic lifestyle, into art bowls.

Materials Needed:
Cotton Rope 
plastic bag to cover mold bowl
glue and brush
Spray Paint
Matt  Varnish
Simple Steps:

Cover bowl with Plastic bag as your mold

Holiday Gifts

Brush Pva Glue all over plastic covering

=Wrap Rope around bowl, gluing and wrapping continuously until satisfied with covering.
=Leave to dry for 24 hrs, after it is dry, then gently pull out bowl from underneath the plastic covering. 
=Remove plastic covering from the formed rope bowl, trim edges and prime with white acrylic paint. 
=Leave to dry for another 3 hrs then spray paint the colors you want after it is dry, then  varnish with Matt Acrylic.

I created these bowls, with ropes and plastic bags,with the intention of

The Entanglement;  Abstract Art; Rope  plate.
expressing my own interpretation, of how hectic and entangled my life and so many lives, out there have become and sometimes for what..........? Enjoy.
