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.

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

If you are looking to buy arts in Lagos, this is the place. The collection is huge and from very different African artists. The mess of the place gives it even more charm with an informal character but encouraging you to discover new pieces every time you go. If you are lucky, you will meet Nike herself; one of the...

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.
