The advent or conception of every design in the mind put a smile inside of me, as it metamorphosize into a defined picture waiting to be printed out from my mind. So I go about with this smile & joy inside of me in respective of short comings & limitations. With the knowing that something beautiful is about to be born- my brain child.
In a nutshell every of my Art on Fabric, canvas or any surface, is The Artist Smile And Joy.
Cloth, my new found canvas to express so many feelings, the feeling I express the most is my happiness, positivity and hope in respective of the situations around me.
Let me say- that is why I don’t spare my usage of colours when designing, it is my exhibition of a very positive feelings……. Gidigba Label.
A designer’s mind on cloth. Satisfaction, aesthetic memories and my smile is expressed on this Wearable Art piece. You are not just wearing a cloth but a Designer’s mind.
This is a drama of colours, lines, shapes and space on cloth. Each of these elements of designing are my language of expression, my tools to speak my thoughts and to painting my Artistic Fashion.
Words like these from great designers speaks my mind as I design my Wearable African Art.
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep”
“Design is a journey of discovery”
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together”
“Design is thinking made visible”
“If you’re not failing every now & again, it is a sign you aren’t doing anything very innovative”
A continuation from my previous post on Working in Progress, my Art on Cloth. I am lost of words in expression of this African Artistic Fashion, so much of my words have been transformed into an unconventional designs in this art on cloth.
A conjunction of painting & fashion.
This is the finished work, if I was asked, was it the idea you had in mind when you started this art? I will say no. I only had a concept about the colours and a little bit about the composition because the composition can change when am not enjoying the flow and spontaneity of expression.
I am joyous when my art is unpredictable to me- like a life journey of suspense. Whatever the result, l LOVE IT, because it is an expression of a pure creative force inside of me not bound by principles or rules. It will have been beautiful to see the finished sewn African Artistic Wear, but this is where I have to stop and give to the tailor to do his own art.
A symphony of art and fashion, that is what it is- painting on cloth.
