“Continue creating art, no matter how challenging the process becomes. Continue even though you’re not showing or selling anything. Continue even if you’re dissatisfied with what you’re producing. Determination transcends reason.” Priscila De Carvalho. When I read this words from this site Here I was encouraged and inspired to continually produce art
Most times I stare around my small studio, looking at all my works have done over the years- I ask myself questions like, how are you going to sell all this art? what are you plans towards marketing these aesthetic pieces? My answers or response are covered with brief silence and smile. All I could say is- it is well. The above words from Priscila came very handy to me at this period, that situation can’t stop me from been an artist.
The above paper collage art is my resent painting on canvas, its titled- The Aesthetical, with a dimension in 4ft/3ft.
This is one of my favourite painting/designing on clothes, I enjoy the dramatic explore of lines. Its time consuming because of the consistent use of lines. The idea is to express dynamic movement in space on cloth- African wear.
The African art, painting, designs on cloth, fabric. A painter’s contribution to fashion- artistic fashion.
Painting my imaginative designs on my new found surface- clothes. My African painting and fashion.
Expressing my imaginative African abstract motifs, patterns on sewn fabric in red. This is like my first time painting on a red fabric, I had challenges thinking of how to go about it because of the vibrant nature of the hue. So I worked with a lot of contrasting colours like cool colours (blue, green, purple) and black for the designs to stand out and it came out well.
To crown it all the owner loved it.
Designing the African Wear. This aesthetical top is one of my favourite design and the most interesting story about this work of art is that it was done when I was a bit down. To my surprise it came out well. I see art as an environment where an artists or artiste can exhaust their pain, sorrow, happiness, feelings ……… whether the output is beautiful or not. It is a documentation of the heart.
check out the photos of the designing processes………
A sky blue African Native Simple Top designed with abstract motifs, patterns of colours. I paint on my canvas no one sees it except where it is displayed but when it is done on the cloth I wear and for my customers who patronize my Painting/Fashion Wears. A large audience is giving an opportunity to see my art- A Poetry from with in.
