Its a new week guys!
So I turned a year older a few days ago and I am so grateful and looking forward to what this new year brings. No celebration or anything like that but I did get to go out and on my own too, yeah it was a me day. Its not like I had a choice anyways. None of my friends happened to be around and the only other friend couldn’t make it. Decided to visit Nike Art gallery.
Earlier on in the day I did some baking and then off I went to the gallery to have a visual feast, prior to which I had read so many great reviews of. If someone had asked me a couple of years go about my thoughts on arts, I would have probably made some sort of indifferent facial expression. And that is before giving an ‘I cant be moved by it’ response. Fast forward to now when I can’t seem to get enough of the creativity and richness of culture soaked in them and just how they help clear the mind. Got there and was immediately drawn by the gallery found outside of the main building, which has some gorgeous hand made African inspired purses, tote bags and clutches, necklaces and many other stuff for sale, really amazing stuff I must say.
And guys, these pictures don’t even do enough justice to how amazing the place looks.
Quite a handful of the paintings reflect Lagos in miniature; from the traffic to owambes (weddings) typically just life in Lagos and generally the African story to a larger extent.
It was a wonderful experience really and did I mention its totally free to gain entry into the gallery? yeah it is and also quite easy to locate. In case you happen to be in Lagos and will like to pay a visit, it is located at No 2 Elegushi Road, 3rd Roundabout, Epe Expressway, Ikate, Lekki 1.
Thanks for stopping by, until next time
