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.

You will get the warmest welcome in Nigeria from the lovely host Nike(the owner of the gallery) when you visit this place. I am an artist, I come here often. But it is a nice place to see loads of African art works- Paintings, textiles, sculpture and dance. Go there any time. You wont regret it.

I had to do a review of Nike Art Gallery for work and I can honestly say I was blown away after my time there. It's 2 floors of mind blowing African art not to mention the cafe situated outside. Even if you're not an art enthusiast, it would make a believer of you.

Lagos has a wealth of art and talented artists. The Nike Art Gallery is an amazing day out with some really creative use of materials. Additionally, you will find that a lot of bars and hotels have excellent works of art to decorate their walls you will find that Nigerians are very adept at openly discussing art.
