My name is Miabo Enyadike, I am an International Fine Artist with over 28 yrs as a professional visual artist living and working in Africa.
I create Colorful abstract paintings, I am an Artpreneur.
My Abstract Art is a reflection of who I am and how I see, feel and interpret life issues, I also love my environment and I am bothered about its sustainability. I reflect that in the materials I choose to work with, trying in my own little way to make a difference through Abstract Art.
I love color because it makes me happy, people say I have a colorful and energetic personality, passionate and bold with confidence, that is how I create art in the same way.
As an Abstract Artist
My main style in Art is Abstract Art and my favorite medium and material is Ink on recycled Smooth paper boards and I am Inspired by Picasso
I have been interviewed extensively about my work on T.V, Podcast and Print media.
In 2006 I was awarded a Ford Foundation award and grant for contemporary art by the Terakulture Nigeria(Nigerian Institute of Arts).
In 2017 Exceptional Service to Fellow Artist Award by the prestigious College of Art and Design, Yaba Tech, Lagos Nigeria.
I am an Interior decorator and an Art blogger, who writes about my personal views on Art and Crafts. And I organize Art workshops for Artists and Kids.
My Abstract Art Painting Chaos and Confusion was an inspiration used by students in Stafford County Schools and Chesterfield County Public Schools, west Virginia to create sonic sound music as a way to relieve themselves during the virtual learning period, as Covid surged, with the help of www.lightthemusic.com
