Mama Nike - a woman with artistic brush.
Nike Monica Okundaye is a world renowned African female artist who uses richly detailed and arresting batik images to chronicle her society’s contradictory views towards women. To redress some of the social disadvantages faced by women in her part of Africa, she established the Nike Art Foundation – with 4 centers for Arts and Culture across Nigeria, where an apprenticeship model is used to train aspiring artists. This is her commitment to the economic well-being of the center’s artists.
