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.

Never been to the Art Gallery itself but met with the workers during the GTB Fashion Weekend and I was amazed. Saw for the first time how aso-oke is being made and I got to appreciate the prices of these things. The tie and dye they make are absolutely beautiful though pricey but I guess it is worth the amount... More

It was really fascinating to see art by local artists displayed over 3 floors. Impressive collection too.I had met Nike the previous night at a function and I was impressed to see her the next day at the gallery. Very amiable lady.

great artwork but as a general tourist soon got bored with the same style of artwork and the need to be accompanied by an 'artist".

Look this is an art lovers paradise. There's 4 floors of wall to ceiling, wall to wall art. The day my bankers are looking for me they'll probably find me there. The proprietress the indefatigable Nike Okundaye is just a pure hearted person. Always willing to teach or take a picture or train. Everyone at the gallery is a well... More

This is just a divine gallery, and the owner is fabulous. It is a must to visit. There are many floors of wonderful Nigeria art, displayed in a purpose built gallery.
