It is a very interesting place to visit when in Lagos. It is the largest art gallery in the West Africa region. The quality of the artists is outstanding and the ladies working there will take you through a tour to understand more about the artists and their techniques. Definitely worths the visit.

Been to this gallery twice. Once with my sister and the other with my wife. Wanna see lots and lots of floor-to-ceiling paintings and sculptures? Here is the place! Plus the owner of the gallery is very warm and she sells authentic and distinctive African fabrics. Interesting gallery. About 4 floors of good African art from lots of indigenous artists,... More

Didn't buy any art because I went for sight seeing but it's a really nice place. Great art works. Recommend that you get to visit this place anytime you are in the Lagos - Lekki axis.

Nike is 4 or 5 floors of floor -to-ceiling large acrylic paintings so new the paint doesn't always look dry. Many artists represented seem to generate their work on an assembly line. Common to see 10 to 20 or more paintings of nearly the same image by the same artist. I love the best African art and tribal masks but... More

Nike's art gallery is the first significant art gallery to be opened in Nigeria . It is spacious , elegant , well lit , and contains a treasure trove of Nigerian and other African art. It should not be missed when visiting Lagos

Nike Art gallery is a serene one with an array of many works by different artist known and unknown. They have over six thousand collections of works, appropriately numbered, well spaced and cared for. All works are enchanting, descriptive, mostly allowing for individuals to make up their minds, but certain abstract works are detailed to guide the reflection/perspective of the... More

Apart from containing the most comprehensive collection of Nigerian (and some other African) Art on the planet you get the chance to meet and be greeted by that very special lady herself - Nike Ogundare-Davies. Ever ready to give you a tour and explain about whichever artist is the current exhibitor or to talk about the famous school of Osogbo,... More
