 Abstract Art Faces Ideas to View Now

Indigo Blue color is a color tone, I have come to know and love. This color was huge in the late seventies, in my home country of Nigeria.

It is a  blue color, I remember vividly that was used on fabrics to create what we know as Adire(Tie dye) pronounced Ah-d-rear.

The Inspiration for this series is drawn from the blue tye-dye fabric in my home country, where different shades and tones of blue are applied on white cotton through natural dyes to create a traditional textile design called Adire.

 This used to be an ancient textile Art of dying pure cotton fabric for days in a dye pit dug in the ground, using natural elements that create this awesome blue hue, and this method of traditional dyeing is still used till this very day.






                      

In my early childhood in Nigeria, early seventies, everywhere you turned at that time or era everyone had an Adire outfit of some sort from babies to adults.

 Entire families coordinated their "church clothes" in Blue Adire. These days it is seen more as a native traditional outfit.

                        
 Adire textile Art, is predominantly done in the western part of Nigeria and it is an Art form passed on from generation to generation.

It is one bold dark blue that is royal and stands alone and when placed next to plain brilliant white, is transformed to a very dignified and defined color that just speaks for itself.

These days we see it in the resurgence of Shibori art which is also an ancient Japanese Textile Art form and  other tie dye Art and craft. For me it is part of my Nigerian culture and heritage.

We may not all wear the Indigo trend now as that was so "seventies", this color for me is nostalgic and will be present always, with different reinventions of ways to keep it fresh and relevant.

Dark blue, Parisian Blue, Royal Blue, Deep blue and Indigo blue all share the same Shade and hue just slight difference in tone. 

Blue will always be a cool and distinct color and is one color that enhances the next color without over powering it.

 Blue color has proved to be majestic and bold but cool and easy on the eye, these portrait illustrations show that in a different way,one can create art with just one tone of color, understanding how to apply it on a white surface to still achieve a realistic feature is another thing but it is worth a try....

These Blue Portrait series is that try, and I love them.

Enjoy
