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.

This is a gem of a place, I hope people take the time to visit the gallery. There are countless pieces of art in this gallery, there is a second building in the back which is inaccessible but contains more art pieces. You do not realize from the front how large the building is once inside. It is really a... More

Have never seen so much artwork in one place..it is amazing. and all African...make sure you meet Nike too... great person to talk to. There are sculptures, paintings, cloth, beading...so much to see, it is almost too much to take in. Make sure you have about 3 hours or more to look around!

We were privileged to be able to take part in Nike's annual Nigerian culture day! It included dancing, music, food and of course the gallery of artisans work was almost endless. She has dedicated her life to preserving the Nigerian culture and it was a rare treat for us to be able to take part in this wonderful experience. Highly... More

You will have to go all the way to Lekki Penninsula to see this gem but trust me; it will be well worth it. Nike Okundaye started out in Osogbo, one of the major art centres in Nigeria and home to the famous mosaic artist Jimoh Buraimoh and the late sculptor Susan Wenger among others. She has showcased both new... More

Considering the decay and rot I would discover at the National Museum only a few days later, it was great that I got to see Nike Art Gallery first. On a whim, an expat friend of mine in Lagos mentioned that she would be attending a music gala on the grounds of the gallery and a couple of us decided... More
