ART STORYTELLING OF OUR TIMES.






These days, all I read in the newspapers on a daily basis, could be summed up into three parts, 
1.Global economy.
2.Disregard for Human rights.  
3.Climate change.

STOLEN BABIES

This informs my decision, on many aspects of our lives, in this world that we live in. It goes on to determine how we think and how we live.

                                          SPONSORED

I have read the same newspaper brand for years, and that particular brand of newspaper, is what I read everyday and at the end of reading it, I am filled with mixed feelings


200 CHIBOK GIRLS KIDNAPPED IN NIGERIA

sit and wonder, about  everything life. I try to process the events I read in my mind, some of them are so heartbreaking. It makes me wonder, how these things could even be conceived let alone allowed to happen.



THE RELIEVED MOTHER

As an artist, each day I try to replay these events differently in my mind, giving it a face, in order for me to fully understand, or even come to terms with some of these events, we are witnessing that are being brought to our attention daily.

I have made quite a few of these stories, that you and  I  have read in the papers, in some way, into drawings.


   
            

 These drawing are mixed media, and were made with charcoal and Ink, on the financial pages of my daily news paper. 

I did these illustrations on the financial pages of the newspaper I read because finance, plays a huge part in a lot of these events that happen in our lives.

                                             SPONSORED

 I am telling these stories, through Ink as a medium on newspaper sheets with a street art style in a rather Pedestrian way because life has become too  simplistic to us all we have all become complacent in one way or another, ignoring facts as we are faced with onslaught of events that overwhelm us all.


                              Nature at Stake

 These Art stories are a reminder to help us further understand how these events, have truly in some way changed our perceptions about life.

 Finally, for me it's all about storytelling the times we are in with ART! ......... ENJOY

ABSTRACT ART WITH TEXTURE ON OBJECTS


Abstract Art Object by  Miabo Enyadike


Texture is something, I always use in my art because it adds more details to what I'm creating.

Abstract Art Object by  Miabo Enyadike

 I always look for new ways, to incorporate texture and color, with any surface or medium I'm working with, in order to add more depth and creativity to my object of choice. 


Abstract Art Object by  Miabo Enyadike

These particular objects, are vases and ceramic tiles. My inspiration comes from a rich combination of different flowers in a

 garden that have diverse colors, yet the colors seem to blend in a breathtaking way.

 I felt the need to use colors that are complementary, in a way that gives you

 a summer garden look, where all kinds of flowers  with different colors and shades  blossom together.

These art pieces I have created, is what I refer to as art accessories and they are

 stand alone pieces each with a story depending on how you relate to it or your interpretation.

 Though each art piece has a different narrative, it is easy to point out my use of color and sculpted texture, as my primary objective.

It is basically what I was hoping to achieve........

ABSTRACT ART IN INK ON PAPERBOARD


Abstract Art is an expression or impression, of how an Artist interpretes what they see in their own way regardless, of the norms. That is my own true definition of an Abstract Artwork.


These abstract Art paintings were created from that same mindset and expression,on how I view a situation, an issue,a person, nature and events. 

I tell my story with color and express them in Abstract. 

My Art is influenced by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Jasper John and Robert Rauschenberg.


                                           ABSTRACT ISSUES
                                           Distorted Society

This Abstract Art painting  is inspired by  how our society is represented  in the eyes and minds of many, who already have a distorted view about the society we live in.



                                      ABSTRACT HUMANITY
                                           Title: The Journey

This is an abstract art painting in Ink on paperboard describing life's journey,into the unknown.The Ink medium indicates the flow of issues, we as humans encounter on earth.



                                 ABSTRACT NATURE

ARTIST COLOR PALETTE





I love vibrant colors, I really do not tint my colors when I'm painting.I paint directly without thinning with water or turpentine. I rarely tone down my colors, I just love them bright. 


                            Mommy and Baby: Abstract Art: Ink on Paperboard by Miabo Enyadike


Since most of my Art is Ink based, I try to maintain the rich tone of the ink and that is the reason I create Art on paperboards, that are slightly glossy and smooth. The richness of the colors and the smooth ivory background that is signature to my work, gives my Art a very polished photo look. 

                                Fashion Art: Ink on paperboard: by Miabo Enyadike

My palette consist of all the primary colors, which are red, yellow and blue, when you view my Art, they are in dominance of my Art process because I am not afraid to use them in there strength, aligned and nsync with each other, I love that.

                                                   (In Private Collection)

 My palette as an Artist is simple, yet colorful and daring, somehow childlike in its combination and
challenging the norms of how color should be applied to creativity while leaving an impression, in the minds of my audience that my work might be unfinished! 


                                Lady: Abstract Art:  Ink on paperboard by Miabo Enyadike

Well as a professional artist of over 20 plus years, I am yet to see or meet an Artist who is completely finished or satisfied with their work, 

                                        15%off Art in Saatchiart.com/artmiabo


there is always something more they would have added if only they knew what, but we put our work out there nevertheless, with a nervous bravado hoping our audience witness a finished piece of work.


                           Carnival Face: Abstract Art: Ink on Paperboard: By  Miabo Enyadike
( In Private Collection)

 My work speaks about how I see things, bright and colorful. Maybe that's why I don't paint landscapes, because I wouldn't quite get it right, with my basic color palette.


                                    Man: Abstract Art: Ink on Paperboard: By  Miabo Enyadike


The good thing about a signature color palette, is critics can always identify your work immediately, I don't know the advantages or disadvantages of that.

What I know, is our work should speak for itself through our Color palette, Dimensions, Light, Lines, Structure, Subjects, etc and my pick today is Color Palette......Enjoy.

AFRICA MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE.





Africa 
Africa is my continent, one that  I love and cherish, the eclectic mix of cultures and people is beyond imagination. 

Every country in Africa is unique to its people, culture and origins that's why the continent, is always a draw for people to visit and explore.

 My Africa, is a place where  resilience is inborn not acquired, you inherit that!.  Family is everything  and you support each, other no matter what.



 I love my Africa,  the dusty streets, the simplicity of the people,  the ceremonies that last for days with no reason at all, except the need to celebrate a cultural event. 

The communal feast and the beautiful array of colors that is reflect in our culture. Africa is rugged, no matter where you see it, from Cape to Cairo that is what makes it interesting and fascinating, to want to experience this ruggedness and just want to embrace it and polish it, into something beautiful. 

The entire continent, is filled with huge potential, to make an impactful difference,I love that!.

 Having being exploited for centuries, it has left the continent weary and burdened, but the shine and attraction has never been defeated.



There is always something fantastic, coming out of Africa and that's it's people!. Our unrelenting resilience to be recognized, in the world stage is a huge factor in this rugged continent.

 My Art on Africa, expresses how I see the continents individual countries, tribes and ancient civilizations, lumped together, by colonialism.

Whereby people who had no clue or idea, about who we are or why we are, except  their poor unfortunate understanding of geography, decided to sew us up together and name us Africa. 



We are a people of different races, culture, habits, religion, educational aspirations and  origins.

From time to time, these differences, rears their ugly heads and transcends into tribal and ethnic wars that ravage societies, in the continent almost to extinction.

With that been said, we still rely on folklore and tradition to maintain, our different cultures and ways of life, as practiced by our forefathers.



 The mixed Media Art, I created tells this story just looking at it. It is made out of Jeans pants, stitched together with cotton ropes, and painted with acrylic paint, in very big brush strokes that appear rough,to give that street look of ruggedness. 



Then the ropes, are used again to create texture on the painted jeans. The jeans, signifies the defiance and resilience, of the African people despite all the misgivings, the continent has had to bear for centuries. 

The textured ropes, indicates the mishaps the continent, continues to grapple with, which seems endless and stands in the face of this fascinating  continent.

 These issues include wars, famine, corruption, diseases, that somehow overwhelms, the true beauty and potential of the continent.  



The vibrant mishmash of colors, are an indication of our colorful heritage, that is reflected in our diverse cultures, food, textiles and lifestyles, all through the continent.

We all know, how hard wearing Jeans is, which we wear everyday,it takes all the hard knocks, and even when discarded, can still wear prove its  usefulness. 



That, is why worn Jeans pants, are my inspiration and  the main material for this project. I used
 (20 pairs) of Jeans to be exact. 

To me, its hard wearing nature lends itself well, to this project, of my narrative of how, I see my Africa. 

The use, of these every day materials for this Art project, was because they are  fascinating, they draw curiosity and ignite creativity that extends imaginations, when viewed. 

As Art, the aim is to bring the audience into this narrative and that was achieved, when I exhibited this work in my recent solo exhibition in Lagos, Nigeria. 



This is how people see Africa from the outside, rough, dangerous, yet fascinating and beautiful.

 My Africa, may be rugged but it is resilient and indeed beautiful, like a work of Art filled with abstract theories and interpretations that are based on how you see it.....Enjoy.

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM | FACES BY MIABO ENYADIKE



             ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM | FACES 


 The other day, I sat in my studio and I let my thoughts and imagination take over me as usual, thinking about all the subjects I love to draw or paint and why I paint or draw these particular subjects always.

I discovered that I am a people watcher whatever that means, I just love to watch people, their expressions, attitude, bravado and in general how they relate to events or situations around them.

         UNTITLED; INK ON PAPERBOARD;MIABO ENYADIKE.
When I'm out jogging, I look at the expression on the faces of other joggers, then I'm satisfied that I 'm not the only one with the expression of pain kind of.
   UNTITLED;INK ON PAPERBOARD; MIABO ENYADIKE
 When I'm shopping or out eating it's the same, I just look at expressions on the faces of people it tells me, if they are happy or satisfied being in that place at that time. 
         Untitled: Abstract Art: Ink on paperboard: Miabo Enyadike
For me, that's how I create Art.
My other love is flowers, they bring me huge Joy and I buy quite a lot of them. 

              FLOWER ARRANGEMENT; INK ON PAPERBOARD; MIABO ENYADIKE
I love to arrange them in vases since I'm not a keen gardener, I sort of create my 'Own garden in a vase'.
I love taking pictures of the flowers and talk about them forever, then get emotional blah, blah, when they die off. 
FLOWER ARRANGEMENT; INK ON PAPERBOARD; MIABO ENYADIKE
I came back to earth, after my brief peter pan moment in my studio and decided to put my best asset, to work which is my imagination.....using large sized paperboard and Ink to create art I love..........Enjoy.
