During last week’s Social Media Week, I finally got round to visiting Nike Art Gallery in Lekki. I loved it. It was full of what I can only refer to as treasure! A fantastic array of African art all under one roof.

Sculpture, painting, metalwork; it had everything. I can certainly not do it just in words so here are a few pictures. There are four levels to discover new favourites. I don’t think it’s a one day only type of visit. I spent quite some time but will definitely be back to take more of it in.

Joseph Eze Art

Artist- Joseph Eze

On the tour we were introduced to many new artists on the scene as well as some of the old masters. I will look further into their work and write about some of them in later posts. One of my personal favourites was Joseph Eze, whose work I have seen before but I was unable to identify.

He does these beautiful women with threaded hair. They are beautifully adorned and interestingly each and every symbol/motif on the canvases has a meaning. I will explore further!
