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.

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:

HOW TO PAINT COLORFUL FLOWERS IN ABSTRACT AND INK


Abstract art flower paintings are always an appeal to me. The difference in this particular series, are my choice of background colors.


 The colors, I chose for the backgrounds of all the art, in this series is similar and vivid in its representation.

                                           Sponsored


 I created contrast between the flower paintings and the backgrounds to show some kind of depth, between the two.


 All the floral paintings represent flowers I have photographed, seen or planted in my small back garden.


 Flowers never fail to present itself as a medium of Joy, life, love and happiness and in this series, I try to evoke some of the realities attached to flowers.


 My illustrations are simple and have morphed from pen and ink drawings to abstract art my favorite genre in fine art.


When I draw and paint flowers, I always keep in mind my audience first and what would appeal to their innermost senses.

                                                                    Shop here


 I ask myself questions like what flower arrangement would they like? what combination of colors do they gravitate to? and what kinds of flowers or plants are most loved? by everyone, including children.

                                                                           Sponsored





Then I start by visiting the florist store, garden shops and then read what's new or hot, in the flower and plant world.



 I also check out interior decor publications, to see what's the new flower craze and how it is incorporated into the whole interior decor scheme. 


I check out colors of flowers and juxtapose them on different shades and colors of cardboard, then I pick my color shades.This series is made on smooth paperboards to allow the Ink flow the size are all the same, 50cmx30cm.

                                                                                    Sponsored

That was how I created this art, because my entire art philosophy is color driven.



 I love color, I use a lot of it and I am not afraid of experimenting with primary colors at its purest, as you can see, the colors are not tinted or diluted they are straight out of the Ink bottle unto the paper and left to dry for 3-5 days. 



'Art is the Way I See It' I always say that and indeed I put that to practice in all my works, I hope these paintings bring you Joy, Happiness and love the way they were intended to........Enjoy.

ARTIST AND GEOMETRIC SHAPES AND LINES | MIABO ENYADIKE

ARTIST AND GEOMETRIC SHAPES AND LINES.



What if geometric shapes and lines are the secret tools of the Artist? Maybe they are? just saying.......

Fine Arts begin with geometric shapes and lines. Are these shapes and lines the secret tool of the Artist? I always ask myself this question when I'm sketching down an idea for Art.


Our lives in lines: Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike

When we see Circles, Cylinders, Torus(doughnut), Spheres, Squares, Rectangles and Triangles our minds immediately associate them with mathematics or sciences in general, but this is not so for the artist. 


                             Rectangles and Squares: Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike

The artist sees these, Shapes and lines as creative tools, used to create art pieces. This could be in the form of paintings, sculpting, drawing, designing and architecture.



Our lives in lines: Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike

These geometric shapes, truly work with the artist and also shape the entire creative process of their artwork, without any formal calculations or mathematical formulas. Allow me to further explain, the use of geometric shapes in art.

Squares and Circles: Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike

 For instance, sketching a human face, neck, and shoulder is simply to draw first, a sphere which represents the human  face, then proceed to draw a cylinder which represents the neck.


Circles on fire: Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike

 Then draw straight lines, shooting out  from both sides of the bottom of the cylinder as the shoulders, before getting down to the business of putting the entire facial expressions, light and shade in order.



It is that simple, the point I am making is simply the use of Shapes and lines, is a must when attempting any creative endeavor with a pen, pencil, chisel, brush, or even cutting paper for decoupage, lines are involved in the form of shapes.


Diamond: Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike
        
In my abstract expression of the use of lines, I pay homage to Bauhaus Style, in its simplicity yet using lines and shapes, in a way that is both commanding, intriguing and fascinating.


                   Our lives in lines:Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike


This Style is seen in design, art, architecture and lifestyle in general.
   
Universe: Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike

My interpretation is a bit different, though not a complete departure from the Bauhaus Style, that is still so relevant today especially in design architecture.


                                       Travel/Abstract Art by Miabo Enyadike

  In this case, this is my opinion on how lines play a part in my abstract expression of  geometric lines and shapes be my guest and...... Enjoy.

ARTIST AND THEIR PERSONAL STYLE | MIABO ENYADIKE.


ARTIST AND THEIR PERSONAL STYLE | MIABO ENYADIKE.





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 Saatchi.com/artmiabo
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.

                                      Discover my Art in Saatchi.com/artmiabo
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 Saatchi.com/artmiabo
 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.


               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 Saatchi.com/artmiabo

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.

 So the question goes again,
WHAT IS YOUR ART STYLE?......Enjoy.
