Photos of a creative stage of an African art on cloth. An imaginary, intuitive and a spontaneous use of lines and spaces in gratifying my search for aesthetics on cloth- an African Artistic Fashion.
A Mobile Art, that is what I call painting on cloth, it goes beyond been exhibited on the wall. But exhibited on bodies of homosapiens as they engage in their day to day endeavor. Check my next post on the finished African Artistic Fashion.
A finished work of art is like- waking up to see your dreams and visions coming to reality. You see it and feel it all around you. You are consume with joy, bliss and fulfillment. The remembrance of how you started comes to mind and where you are now- it is really a good feeling.
My African blend of painting and fashion, the finished work of art.
A creative stage of an art on cloth. The colours, patterns and motifs where inspired by the African traditional art in my country- like the calabash decorations, wall mural in the northern part of Nigeria, batik/tie &dye designing in the western areas of Nigeria……. These are my foundation or bases in creating this African Artistic Fashion Wear.
I want to take you all through my creative process- my art on cloth, an extension of my canvas. I took my time to snap the creative processes so that you can enjoy how it is done.
The processes of any good thing is never fine, you just have to wait to see the finishing.
