I am probably one of the biggest Art Lovers in Nigeria and perhaps, Africa. Don't roll your eyes! LoL. It is true. Art is life and inspiring and to think that there are over 40 art galleries (I must have visited about 80% ) in Nigeria alone, brings inspiration closer. I can stare at a piece for 15 mins and I birth new ideas. Don't ask me how. I try to visit an art gallery at least once a month for the solitude, even if it means going to the same art gallery. Red door art gallery enjoys this part of me (read my post on Red door here)

On this occasion, I visited Signature Art Gallery and I was met with more than I expected. It is an art gallery (a veritable source of excellent works of art, art installations and sculptures) but with a feel of a museum as well. The manager and caretaker had exceptional customer service even though they knew I couldn't afford any of the fine pieces, for now. *sad face*

I met a young girl at the gallery, whose father had brought her for some informal education. Immediately she set her eyes on me, she said please don't go upstairs. Her father quickly explained to me why. Apparently, she saw the masquerade art installation and started wailing. That tells you one thing, it is more than an art gallery and in my opinion, it has a feel of a museum which is amazing. A lot of ancient treasures that go as far back as 300 years (as I was told).

Highly recommended!. Have you visited Signature Art Gallery and what were your thoughts? What's your favourite gallery in Nigeria? Please do drop your comments. Thank you.
