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.

My first but definitely not last time at Nike Art Gallery. It's a beautiful stark white building with welcoming art outside and a serene atmosphere. We were welcomed by Nike herself as she was outside in the café area with other guests. Once inside we were overtaken by the sheer quantity and quality of the art itself. Paintings, sculptures, beads,... More

Given the variety, quantity and quality of Art works on display and across several floors, I have to say I was wow'ed. I definitely plan to go return there soon, as it was obvious that one afternoon's visit is not enough to... More

Just last week I returned to the Nike Art Gallery. Both times Cheif Nike and/or her family greeted us warmly. The artworks are lovely, something to suit every price range and taste. There are paintings on canvas, prints on paper, sculptures, furniture, locally hand dyed fabrics and clothing. It is wonderful to see works displayed professionally and curated well. The... More

Absolutely worth the visit! Hand woven, beaded, pure painting, exhibition style, photography you name it. So much talent in one space. I had to do a double take on some pieces which were extremely creative. Nike and her team are inviting as well :)

Nike Art Gallery is always on our itinerary when we have a group visiting Lagos. Nike Davies-Okundaye and her team are some of the most creative hosts you will find anywhere. You are welcomed by her dancers with exciting dance routines, dressed in colourful traditional attire, taught local dances, and given a taste of sumptuous local delicacies! And of course... More

The staff are really welcoming. Chief Nike is the most beautiful person inside and out. If you have the pleasure to meet her you are blessed. You can spend hours here. The art is amazing. Even my under 5's enjoyed the visit. They could have more comfortable seats in the cafe though.
