Nike Art Gallery is West Africa’s largest art gallery founded and owned by the iconic Nike Davies-Okundaye — a globally revered indigenous textile designer from Ogidi, a Yoruba-speaking town in Kogi State, North-Central Nigeria.

Renowned for her ingenious artistic works in Batik, Adire and embroidery pieces, Nike had her first solo exhibition at the Goethe Institute, Lagos, Nigeria in 1968. Since then, she has made several indelible impacts on African art and culture, garnering the attention of illustrious audiences across the globe, including the best of the art world in Europe and the United States of America.
