Art Museums Galleries To Visit | Artmiabo

         Art Museums Galleries To Visit Art galleries around the world afford audiences a preview or view of culture past and present. They are curated in ways that educate, inspire and intrigue their audience.  People visit these museum galleries for so many reasons, mostly from curiosity and interest to learn more about culture and a subject matter. I love visiting art galleries and discovering new Artist and the Inspiration behind their artwork, but museum galleries are another art form in itself. I myself have my works in a couple of galleries here in Johannesburg, but my blog today is about 10 museum art galleries, that I think inspires, fascinates and intrigues us all.  They are irresistible, I  have visited some of these museums and I know people, who have been to all of them several times over. I hope to visit some of them in the near future, but one can still view the art in them through the internet. So here are my most irresistible museum art galleries to visit....

                                 Understanding Artists Painting History     ABSTRACT PAINTING  NATURES WRATH  BY MIABO ENYADIKE  Art of applying pigments to a surface whether it is on paper, canvas, a wall or any other medium, to create an image with lines and colors is a painting. The image can represent real objects found around us or abstract ones.  It may also be an arrangement of abstract forms. The art of drawing is very essential in painting as one step together with composition and other aesthetic consideration in forming the finished work. History has allowed painting to serve a variety of functions.  It was an important part of religious rites during prehistoric times.  It was also the most common means of providing a visual record of events  and people.  That is why in this blog, I will be recommending several books, that you can purchase to read more about artists and painting history                                       A Book on                       The Visual Arts: A H

Folk Art Tribal Symbols | Artmiabo

Image
               Folk Art Tribal Symbols               CIRCLES, LINES, DOTS From the Cape (South Africa) to Cairo (Egypt) I mean entire Africa, there are traditional symbols that indicate a previous culture or people. DOTS AND RECTANGLES  Some of these symbols can be interpreted to mean something significant, while some are mere decorative symbols, that are still in use today for traditional ceremonies or decorative purposes. DOTS, TRIANGLE, RECTANGLES I have seen quite a lot of them in use as geometric designs, in African art and extended into International art as well.                       TRIANGLES AND DOTS I love these symbols and have used them for a lot of my creative endeavors and these are some of them ... ENJOY.                               ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–                            Miabo Enyadike                   www.saatchiart.com/artmiabo                                                        

My Plastic Abstract Sculpture | Artmiabo

 My Plastic Abstract Sculpture    My kids, drink quite a lot of milk and I am not sure, I know the health implications of excessive milk drinking, I just know that milk drinking in my house hold, borders on excessive.  I always put away the empty plastic containers, in the recycling bin.  It occurred to me,  that I could still do another abstract art with milk containers.  It is time consuming and I am busy, but I love a challenge and recycling art happens to be my first love.  It felt right,  to create a simple sculpture piece on wood, with the milk  plastic containers representing the skyline, and  the townships in between. This particular work, took quite a large number of milk containers, with an 8 m x 4 m of real wood board, thanks to my kids love of milk, I was able to finish it.  What you see is my idea of the Joburg skyline, and the townships in the center of it all. I cherished  the time spent on this work, the whole thought process, and how it

Abstract Painting Mama's Market | Artmiabo

Abstract Painting Mama's Market  I have always wondered thoughtfully, how to define the typical African woman? What drives her? What keeps her going strong? when all is obviously not well! What makes her go all out, to be there for her family regardless of her circumstances, and her ability to be the rock in her family, and weather all difficulties, whilst picking up all the pieces for those she calls her own.  In a continent that is ravaged by war, poor basic amenities, rape, women abuse, child marriages, poor education, no jobs, poor health care, frequent disease outbreaks and the worst, corruption!. Where every achievement taken for granted else where, is herculean in Africa.                          It is mind boggling, to see, day in day out the obstacle most African women, face to survive, let alone be a wife and a mother. Their refusal to be put down by events, be it tradition or otherwise and to almost  always see a way out, no matter what life throws at them is tru

Earth Restoration Series Abstract Art | Artmiabo

 Earth Restoration Series Abstract Art  My passion in fine art is painting.  I love to paint in all mediums and the outcome is always remarkable to me.  I know I love to make a beautiful craft, but for me painting on any surface, is what I truly enjoy exploring. To emphasis this is simply to look back, on the paintings by our forefathers, we call it rock painting they called it Art!. I enjoy every second and savor every brushstroke as my imagination burst unto canvas, capturing my thoughts, on a particular subject, indeed it is truly gratifying. Abstract paintings with a mixed media twist always capture my imagination, sorry guys, just saying what works for me.  My personal take on still life painting is simple, it does no justice to the very eclectic world we find ourselves in.  This is a world, that is indeed a mishmash of colors, ideas, techniques, and ambitious creativity, coming together to form a union.  Where ideas no longer have a

Abstract Artists Use Art As Messaging Tools | By Miabo Enyadike

Abstract Artists Use The Power of Language in Art As Messaging Tools Artist everywhere, create art they way the see it. Most from their guts and interpret it they way the understand it. These days art can be anything, the onus is simply on the artist to create a narrative around what they are displaying and it should resonate with their audience. I make art that is abstract in nature, and mostly with found objects, the aim is to create awareness around the simplicity in art but also the profound messaging around it. Anything art can be used to convey a message, in this day and people immediately are drawn to it, they see themselves or people they know in these messages and immediately align themselves with it, in today's art, it is all about that direct messaging!                   War                  Bottles          Abstract/Mixed Media          by Miabo Enyadike Art like I said needs to appeal both aesthetically and messaging wise, these two objects of art which include
