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.

Hats off to Mme. Nike for having put together such a rich collection of artwork by Nigerian artists. The gallery is located in a beautiful 4-story building, with every inch of space used effectively to display its treasures. Despite this, an equally large collection is stacked along walls and in little side rooms awaiting its turn. This is indeed a... More

From the tie dye, to the talking drums and the 'Aso' making... I found Nike art gallery to be fun and educative... And the (free) food was very very tasty!

Must admit the art displays far exceeded my expectations. I thought we saw some incredible art and artfaces from Nigeria bringing out the beauty of indigenous works. A Must visit.

Nike Gallery is well located and easy to find. Plenty great works in different media to select from. Some of the works are a bit pricey, but you can negotiate. It is also good that they can arrange delivery to you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. From the African art chairs and tables through the vast gallery located on 4 floors. We were met by a gracious host who walked us through some of the pieces downstairs and then left us to explore at leisure. We enjoyed looking at the range of subject matter. We found it fascinating that city life,... More
