HOMELESS MAN; ART ILLUSTRATION BY MIABO ENYADIKE.

Image
We just celebrated father's day, last Sunday and everywhere had signs or display, saluting fathers.  The social media was buzzing with all of us trying to outdo each other, with greetings and outpouring of love, to all the fathers we know out there. It was indeed wonderful and fathers felt loved. The restaurant,  we were  having fathers  day lunch was packed with families and there they were, all the fathers. Obviously enjoying all the attention and beaming with pride, for having been recognized, at last by their families that they are in charge.  THE HOMELESS MAN; INK ON NEWSPAPER; ILLUSTRATION;  130CM,120CM; 2015; MIABO ENYADIKE. Then it struck me, right across the street sat a very  disheveled man, with very tired bloodshot eyes, just staring at something that was not there.  He could not have been staring at the cars that drove, certainly not the people who walked past and not even in the direction, of the  restaurants as there were different eateries ar

MIXED MEDIA ART WITH LEATHER AND PAPER CUTS BY MIABO ENYADIKE

Recently, I was offered a huge pile of leather cut offs by the upholstery store down the road around the area I live.  Its not that I'm a big customer, but  I am a friend of the business and their regular, leather stalker. I keep an eagle eye on their leather scraps. They know, that I would take whatever, I am given with gratitude and appreciation, so the stalking became legal.  When I was given, this huge pile I immediately went into creative mode in my mind. Coming up with  craft ideas, I could use these cut offs for.  Then it occurred to me, that I could actually create art, with it.  Something different, simple but abstract. I decided to create, sculpted newspapers as the base, to apply my leather cut offs on.  Each telling a story, that is different but are all similar, because of the leather and the colors I chose to paint them. The inspiration for these Art comes from cows.  The fact that they add color to our lives

ART JEWELRY COLLECTION | BY MIABO ENYADIKE

  Jewelry making is a craft I enjoy and it helps me financially too. Bead making can also serve a revenue stream and a small business that can grow into something big. I enjoy jewelry making because it allows me to be more creative and daring. The cool thing about making jewelry, is there are no rules,   any cool object or material could be used and that's fabulous.  Most of the jewelry, I make are beads and I make them,   for the purpose of Art not really to be worn.   I enjoy mounting them, on mannequins as display and sell them as art. These beads are acrylic beads and I decided to design them as a collection. So I share with you some of them,  exhibited in a craft show...Enjoy!                          MIABO ENYADIKE
