Art is an important aspect of Nigeria’s cultural image. Also, Nigeria’s craft environment keeps on prospering at a great pace as Nigerian craftsmen, workmanship lovers, and custodians progressively break inventive and business molds to keep the business alive in general society’s cognizance. Art, being enchanting, goes past the range of simple minded individuals which makes it sort of hard to understand for them.
Be that as it may, for the individuals who have prevailing understanding of the delightful secrets of life, arts fills their brain with ponder and surprise. In today’s Nigeria where Art, which should be sacrosanct, is generally consigned to the foundation, craftsmanship itself is by all accounts experiencing transgression: Due acknowledgment isn’t being allowed unto it.

GOD is a creative. . Few days ago I took a trip to @nikeartgallery with my brothers @vincyxtreme and @marcusonoja. . It was such an amazing experience for us all, seeing the beauty of African ingenuity, art that show cases the history of our rich culture, from fetishes to well sculptured pieces of art, with over 25k pieces of hand crafterd art, it’s one place you should visit. . With the whole experience it brought me to the scripture in Genesis 1 v 1 ‘in the beginning God created’ . God introduces himself to humanity as a creator, not a teacher, not a king, not a religious leader, but an intelligent and intentional being, all other titles are pretty important but then He chooses to show us His creative side. . Every plant, tree, the ocean is an expression of His creativity, the sun He placed in the canvas of the sky, the fishes well crafted to meander the water ways, everything shows an intelligent design. . We are Peices of Gods art, and the good news is He made us in His own image, what that means is He painted himself unto us, if God is creative so are you. . Let your creative juices flow, let your light do shine before men, you might not paint, but you can write, you can dance, you can sing, It’s time to be more intentional stop hiding your Art, let it shine, your art doesn’t have to make sense to everyone, develop the art excellently and your audience will find you. . What’s one thing you do so well? Share in the comments and invite us to check you out.
