All The Wonders In Nike Art Gallery

From the entrance to the last floor, the Nike art gallery will leave you in awe of all its conspicuous artworks irrespective of you being a lover of art like myself or not.

It is an art gallery and a textile museum featuring over 6000 pieces. It provides artworks from different professional artists who have created perfection through their ideas. If you are an enthusiast of African art or you derive pleasure around art, Nike offers the opportunity to see captivating things.

The gallery is a five storey building painted in white and designed with marbles. It is owned by Chief (Mrs.) Oyenike Monica Okundaye popularly known as Nike who is the founder of four art centers. It includes works of Owolabi Ayodele, Aliki, Dotun Alabi, Abiola Idowu and also Nike Okundaye. These artworks include paintings depicting all the tribes in Nigeria , sculptures carved with wood and also different types of textiles.

Fortunately the Art gallery has no entry fee and is open seven days a week from 10am-6pm. It holds workshops, exhibitions and cultural days. It might also interest you to know that Nike provides art courses for creative people. Over 1000 people have benefited from her generosity.

You are allowed to take pictures using the artworks as a background. I couldn’t take my eyes off the sculpted aligator. So take a picture for the “gram” and have fun.
Location: No. 2, Elegushi Road,
3rd Roundabout, Epe Expressway,
Ikate Cross Road, Lekki Phase 1 Peninsula,
