So fresh from my studio, with my last touch done today. The mixed media painting in dramatic colour with medium in carton, foam, acrylic, canvas and a dimension of 1ft by 4ft. Recycling carton and foam, that is what this Art is all about and an inter-play of colours that is endless.
I don’t really have much to say, i just want to share some beautiful photos of my Visual Art senior secondary school students in action. Trying to observe, draw and paint, representing what they can see. Interpretation at their level of understanding. I am there to make them see a little bit. Lets see more photos…….
I want them to explore one hue- Black. Try to make them understand the shades, values and light, bringing those three things into painting by doing monochrome wash on a cartridge paper.
Watching my students get busy is what visual art is all about, bring the unknown to reality. It give the students a sense of fulfillment- to create and design some thing beautiful.
This is the end.
This colourful mixed media painting is untitled, am still thinking about giving it a title. At the beginning all i could think was a sweet slim lady, but after the finishing the thought left. The medium of the painting are cartons, foam, acrylic and canvas, the dimension is 4ft by 1ft.
I always ask myself if i can paint with one hue or limited hues on my canvas. It is going to be difficult. I am obsessed with colour, i see colours as the life of a painting. My dream as an artist is to break out and create new combination of colours, make my art encompassing in dynamic colours and values.
I will get there.
This is to you
You who can
Hold a man’s gaze
You who can
Put a man in felicity or in ructions
With one movement.
You, who with subtlety
You who sets man
On an odyssey of meaningfulness
This is for you.
Spice of life
This is for you
You who can convince even God,
As you did in the very beginning,
To make you the most beautiful,
Of all his creations.
Queen of the earth
This is to you
You who even nature favours,
Complementing your beauty with
Glowing skin and hair,
Enhancing your smile with,
So supple, so soft.
A nexus of things unknown.
This is to you,
You whose complexities,
Puzzles philosophers and scientists,
You whose every movement,
Is a mystery to the wise.
You whose jejune look,
Is the greatest deceit.
This is to you.
You who holds love in your hands,
You who is the artist that colours the world,
You who multiplies the earth,
You who is beside every successful man,
You who adds meaning to man’s life.
You who is female,
This is for you.
Like a foetus in mother’s womb,
I lay on my bed,
My view transcends the white ceiling above my head,
And I see myself under the dark blue starful skies,
I faintly hear birds chirping,
And frog croaking,
And the vigilante making noise with iron,
Many a breeze run through my window,
Capturing me on the soporific embrace
Ordering me to sigh and stretch,
This short period of night hold no tossing and turning for me,
Hold no nightmares for me,
I awaken to the skies opening their eyes,
Walking the sun to its daily duties,
And putting moon to rest,
I think it’s only a moment ago I have shut my eyes,
I am afresh for another day.
Don’t tell me what you really think,
Tell me what you want me to think,
I know what you mean
From what you didn’t tell me,
For it will soothe me to hear,
Your version of a much more boring truth
Oh really! Indeed! How lovely!
Will my reply be.
My sword of vindication sheathed,
Since you say the rehearsed truth.
But impaled be the one who speaks bluntly
Of the insufferable truth.
I need not anyone to spell the obvious.
My inside are already too noisy.
Know the truth and sell it not
Keep it to yourself and spill it not
We all mask our outside and hope
That the truth will be beyond their ken.
Painting, Art and Designing on Cloth. Another extension of my canvas, taking my art from the canvas to cloth- making the art a #Mobile_Art. I always enjoy creating my design on a black fabric or cloth because of the outstanding contrast which makes it sweet. And my friends and client are trilled a lot by the #black_fabric_art. The art is a Female long Sleeve Top with #African_Motifs_Patterns_Design.
