Nike Art Centre, Lagos, is one of Nigeria's hidden treasures. Located in Lekki, Lagos, the four-story building compromises of an art gallery and textile museum featuring over 7,000 pieces and soon to have Coffee shop. The Centre has a diverse collection of art by a multitude of artists, celebrating Nigeria's talent, offering visitors an insight into all cultures of Nigeria through the medium of art. It can take up to a full day to discover all the Nike Art Centre has to offer. Fortunately, the gallery is open 7 days a week often holding art exhibitions, workshops and cultural days. If you're feeling creative you can take an art course with Nike or go on one of her week-long retreats outside of Lagos in Osun state (Osogbo), Kogi state (Ogidi) and Abuja, all of which you can visit with 'Nike Tours'. The tours offer overnight accommodation at her guesthouses, and partake in creating traditional African crafts such as adire, batik, indigo, beadwork, painting, or carving. Nike Art Centre is an impressive gallery and a must for art lovers.

Beautiful Art Gallery

Enjoyed my time walking around. The hosts were also quite friendly. Got to listen to stories behind the art, and fabrics as well. Will be visiting again.

3 floors of intriguing art works featuring Nigerian artists. If ever you find yourself in Lagos Nigeria do not miss this. Then cool off at the cafe within the compound. I enjoyed the tall glass of natural mixed fruits smoothie, yum.

I have never seen so much art in one location. Nike Art a gallery is simply awesome. I go often to view the art or just for some African meal. It's a must to be if in Lagos. Located at the 3rd roundabout on Lekki expressway.

A fantastic art gallery in such a surprise location. There is a wide range of art displayed over three floors in a peaceful and tasteful environment.

Chaotic, works are everywhere and there is little opportunity to have a proper look. The lights were off (to save energy cost?) making it even more difficult to appreciate the art that was there. Staff was only focused on selling, and when we did not buy art she became very pushy trying to sell some worthless souvenir. Everything is overpriced.... More

Nike has collected and mentored a significant group of very talented local artists, and her gallery provides employment and training to many Nigerians. Her gallery has amazing pieces - it is four stories of wonderful art, of many mediums and many styles, both african and less culturally obvious. With that said, the pieces come at prices that are much higher... More

Nike is a wonderful lady and you should take time to read up about her before you go. Her personal history is very humbling. The gallery includes many cloths too. Prices aren't cheap but this is the top end of Nigerian art. Easy to also head to Lekki market for far cheaper paintings and carvings, as this is 10 mins... More

This place is number 1 to visit in Lagos for a reason. Great place, if Nike is around you're in for a treat. Take some time to explore properly...
