I visited Nike Art Gallery a while ago. Since then I have literally been unable to find the words to describe it. So I will put it quite simply; I was blown away.
Art is that one thing I personally have an insanely high regard for. As a creative that is forever struggling to express herself correctly, I always marvel at any completed work of art. It is inspiring to know that it is possible to communicate your thoughts and vision so precisely that everyone else can see it.
So naturally I quickly scheduled a visit to the gallery as soon as I was in town and let me tell you it was overwhelming. There were so many beautiful, amazing, diverse and insanely creative works of art.
Let me tell you how bad it was; I spent the whole day there and I forgot to take photos. Luckily I had taken a couple on my way in. Also, when I came out from it(yes, it was like a high) I was able to snag a couple photos.
Did I mention that they had to beg me to leave? I will certainly be going back as soon as I can.
You see that horse beside me? And that Baphomet looking one at the back there? Made completely from tires! How insane is that??
The inside is remarkable!! Everywhere you turn you will find beautiful art. There are three floors and every corner is packed full of amazing artworks of different kinds. Like I said, overwhelmingThe white walls are a canvas of their own and help highlight the beauty of the individual paintings and sculptures that grace them.
I feel like I have barely scratched the surface, and truly I have. There is so much more that I would like you to know about this place and yet words fails me. So I urge you, if and when you can go and see it for yourself. Also please find time to read the story of the remarkable Chief Nike Davies-Okundaye, the mastermind behind the gallery.
