Artist Guide Course On How To Market Your Art Online.

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 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.

Abstract Art has always been 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.

I create art with whatever medium, I am opportune 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.

Art silhouette, is described as an outline or dark shape of someone, or something visible in poor light against a brighter background.

 My Art silhouettes are the opposite, they are bright, colorful, vivid and animated and I love that.

Ink, is a medium that I use often for my Art. I love the way it interprets, my thoughts and elevates my creativity.

I artwork, with colors and I like to express my Art, most times in  colorful Silhouettes, that way it is up to my audience to do the interpretation.

My ability, to simply define my narrative on any subject with Ink droplets, is what makes my Art different.

It is, a way for me to convey a message about issues, people, events, in an abstract way that involves the audience curiosity, because that is the whole essence  of this kind of art, in the first place.

My artwork lays, emphasis on color and abstract expressions. It is interpreted, in a unique subjective visual impression, leaving no boundaries, except an idea of the subject matter.

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. My art represents me and portrays my impression of any subject I paint, in a way that everyone witnessing my work, can understand the story I'm telling, because it is art, a universal Language.

                                    Artistic Home Decor and Accents 

My Inspiration, as an Artist and Designer, comes from nature and colors. I, create bold, colorful and cheerful art, from  events and colors of nature, that inspire me.

 I love to, mix and match these colors, to create original pieces of work, in art and design that is beautiful, to collect.
 I also hope, each piece of work I create, tells a story, inspires and brings joy, to my audience and collectors.
Home decorating, is something I'm very familiar with, as a certified interior decorator, my clients always request, for very Arty pieces in their homes, when I advise on their decor choice.
 And for me, that always opens up, another opportunity for me to extend my creativity, by giving each client, something unique that is original that they, can identify with.
 I, always take into consideration, the floor plan and how much risk, I'm willing to take and how much risk my client, is willing to accept. 
That way, it informs my judgement, on how far or less far, I can go with bold colors and abstract design, which is my strength. 
I, create home accents with my original Art, so my clients, know where the art and design, is coming from and the backstory, of each piece that is placed in their home. 
It is, always exciting when my client, is somehow involved in the selection, of decor accents. For me, the back and forth, is the challenge. 
The most, important thread, is satisfying the clients and their brief. One thing, I have found out, is everyone, loves an original anything and something that is authentic. My Art and designs, offers that.
The need, to be different and authentic, is why I do what I do.....Enjoy
