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.

Went here as part of tourist visit and was very impressed by the artwork! You get to see so much that gives a true picture of what the key highlights of Lagos are. The gallery is over 3 stories but not all the artwork is displayed - there is so much and not enough space. The only suggestion would be... More

I gained an appreciation for art back in my university days and since then, when travelling seek out any unique and special gallery or museum. This gallery is an incredible find. 4 floors of some of the most interesting, cutting edge, traditional, cultural and 3D art I've ever seen in ONE facility. From the moment you park in their small...

We visited on a Saturday morning and were amazed at how much art lined the walls, filled the rooms, and sat on shelves. It's a spectacular building, and you can really spend a few hours wandering around the multiple levels. While it's really wonderful to showcase so many local artists, it seems like a shame to have so many paintings... More

I have visited this art gallery twice. The idea in itself is brilliant, but there are too many works of art, so much so that it is difficult for the visitor to really appreciate them. So much so that some some paintings are propped up on the floor against the wall. The prices of a the paintings I feel are... More

Popped in here one afternoon to have a look at the impressive amount of art on sale. The sheer amount of work on display is impressive. You are left to wander alone if you wish or get help if you need. Madame Nike was there the day I visited and was happy to chat. She's a fascinating woman with a... More

Nike Art is always lovely to visit. Go early to avoid traffic. There is a very nice display of real Nigerian art and artists. Take your time. They also have a coffee shop.

Great place to be as a visitor or tourist. Opportunity to buy works of art. Courteous staff. Photography is prohibited. Could provide opportunity to visit other art locations coordinated by the gallery upon enquiry.
