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 from 10am-5pm and 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. « less

It is a very special place. You will be warmly welcomed. The staff are so friendly. A good opportunity to see some beautiful African paintings and to buy a souvenir or two.

The art displayed in this gallery is awesome and inspiring. I also love the attention put in displaying the art. This is the place to take your expatriate friends to show the beauty of African art.

Great to spend 2 hours in a weekend morning. Nike such a fine artist and lady. 4 floors and thousands of pieces of art. There is no correct price for art, right?, priceless if you fall in love. You do not need to buy anything, they are always cheerful. I took over 60 pictures and shared at facebook, all my... More

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
