 My undying love for all things Art, is what
amazes me and truly moves my passion 
to be more edgy and creative.

I love, all things art and I mean all 

things art,music, poetry, design 

fashion, books, movies,architecture 

a beautiful shop window display 

craft, sculpture and even a well 

presented meal, a good flower 

arrangement, e.t.c anything that shows

 creativity to me is Art. 

flowers art on board.

My latest obsession, with upcycled art is 
unnerving, but I like being on the Art edge.



 The adrenalin rush, that comes with an
 idea and the possibility to express 
this idea in any medium of art, is an 
exciting reward that I always look 
forward too.

So I have put together some of the Art
I made in a moment of Art madness.

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.


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.


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


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.


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.


 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

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 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 talent is talent plain and simple.

                                      Discover my Art in
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 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.

               Distance; Abstract Art; Ink on paperboard;Miabo Enyadike.

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.

                                      Discover my Art in

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.

                    Jekyll and Hyde; Abstract Art Ink on paperboard; Miabo Enyadike.

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.

                          Art illustration by Miabo Enyadike

Art has always being for me, the way I see it regardless of how a person, event, object or subject looks in reality. 

                        Art illustration by Miabo Enyadike

My impression of a subject, is simply how I see it from within me, leaving no boundaries except an idea of the subject matter.

                                   Art illustration by Miabo Enyadike

I create art with whatever medium, I am opportuned to possess when inspired. 

                                Art illustration by Miabo Enyadike

These faces are my artist impression of everyday people, myself included getting on with life, revealing more or less about life experiences in their expressions but unconsciously telling a story.


                                   Art illustration by Miabo Enyadike

A story about us, about our humanity, about our common life experiences, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion or allegiance. A story that in itself, is POETRY.......Enjoy.

My Artist focus for this month of September, is Ogunlesi Paul Oyetunde, a young Nigerian Artist whose artworks is inspired by humanity and his immediate society.

His style of painting is focused on Portraiture and an honest expression of the human face, with regards to real people portraying real expressions. 

I can relate to Ogunlesi's realistic paintings of expressions with emotions and how he draws inspiration from people because I am also inspired by the human expressions and faces around me, I just create mine in abstract. 

The reason, I think Ogunlesi is a young Nigerian Artist to watch is because of his focus and sheer genius of the understanding of the human face and how it is structured. 

He's ability, to create wholesome portraits of his subject, that immediately tells you the story of this subject and the society they belong to and represent is telling of an artist, who not only paints well but understands the background of his subjects.
 I also love the fact that, his art is conscious of the environment in which he works because he paints on news prints (old newspapers,) which creates a textured surface for his art. 

In turn, he reduces waste subtly and selflessly creates art and awareness, about simple recycling and upcycling of newspapers in a respected and appreciated manner, which is indeed inspiring.

Below is Ogunlesi Paul's Bio and accomplishments:

 Artist Statement

Art to me is a reflection of who I am, my experiences, my environment and all that makes up my African society. 

I can't describe myself, except that I am always the focal point of my art, irrespective of the subject, I create.
