With incredible African dancers and drummer welcoming every visitor of the gallery, I can't wait to explore the interior of the Henrimoweta African art gallery.
The gallery, which is visibly located somewhere around Adetokunbo Ademola road, Victoria Island, Lagos, is a one room gallery which plays host to anything African, from paintings to sculptures.
Henrimoweta African art gallery is a classic gallery with an artistic aura around it.
Like a plate of sweet jollof rice calling everyone around with its aroma, the gallery offers even more just by passing by.
With incredible African dancers and drummer (in form of sculptures) as well as beautiful portraits and flowers signalling and beckoning on every passerby to take a sneak peek at the beautiful gallery, Henrimoweta gallery spreads an open and welcoming arm to every visitor of the gallery.
Thanks to the neat, glass slides, I can already get a glimpse of what's going on inside the gallery and yeah, with such warm reception from the performers outside (dancer and drummer), I sure can't wait to get into this gallery.
The one room, 3-months-old gallery is a definition of beauty and organisation at the peak in an art gallery.
With all types of sculptures (big, small and tiny) all lined up in a corner of the room, I could evidently see how pleased they were to see me because they were all well arranged. I mean, there was absolutely no cause to fight for my attention, as they all well spaced.
The portraits were arranged around the entire room with a mirror somewhere close to the entrance, giving these portraits multiple effects.
So, if you thought everything African art was limited to just sculptures and paintings, at Henrimoweta's, you're sure going to get a change of mindset as the gallery also had the native African fabrics as part of its collections.
Even though everything about this gallery is African, it has this modern vibe, colour and setting that brings an awareness of the present in the midst of everything African.
Henrimoweta African art gallery, though a pretty small gallery, is a true definition of African art.
