100 years of Modern Nigerian Art


The visual art is the first thing that placed Nigeria on the world map. Contemporary Nigerian art has been growing in importance and recognition, to the extent, that it has moved from shelves to galleries and museums where they are placed side by side with the best that is being created from elsewhere in the world today. Our works of art are important enough for people to live with from day to day, they are sought after as significant collector items fetching super prices in auctions and galleries. Our art has thus not only elevated us as a people, it has also now become a reliable source of earning stream in the economy.
