It’s a new month.
How are your new year resolutions coming?
I had been planning since like forever to visit Nike Art Gallery but the opportunity never came up or maybe I was just lazy about it. For some weird reason, I never thought to check the address of the gallery. Fam, this gallery is located about 10 mins from where I stay and I didn’t know.
So last week, my friends visited Nike Art Gallery and Lufasi Park. Guys, Nike Art Gallery is absolutely AMAZING. I am so angry with myself that I only just went there.
The building has 4 floors with at least 10,000 pieces of art, sculptures etc. They have branches both in Lagos, Osun, Kogi and Abuja.
It is said that the history of arts and crafts in Nigeria would be incomplete without the mention of Chief (Mrs.) Oyenike Monica Okundaye. She is known for promoting Nigerian Arts and Culture via paintings, sculptures and designs.
In her humble quest to further promote, enhance, sustain and provide enabling environment for the growth of African cultural heritage in Nigeria, Mummy Nike single handedly went ahead in 2009 and built a five floor ultra modern cultural art centre at Lekki Peninsula, Lagos with the main purpose of positively transforming the landscape of the hitherto neglected art and culture in Nigeria. This was her 4th Nike Art Gallery in Nigeria.
When we got to the Gallery, there was no light however we were allowed to wonder about on our own.
Photographs were not allowed to be taken inside the Gallery but I was able to take a few pictures.
Below are some of my favorite photos:
