Ankara Paintings

I drew and painted some Ankara designs for my friend’s collection some time ago, and I decided to put it up after much consideration. She wanted an artistic rendition of her works for an exhibition at the Eko hotel and suites in Victoria Island, Lagos state. She is Valentina Ekeleme, a versatile designer who designs bags, shoes, Jewellery, swimsuits, and lots more using the Ankara fabric as her main medium and other African fabrics too. She is super talented, don’t worry I will interview her someday.


I'm OnyinyeOlufunmi, a visual artist, writer and psychologist from Lagos, Nigeria.
