The event also welcomed the two winners of the Instagram Art Competition which gave the winners, Prince Idiage and Laju Sholola, the opportunity to showcase their pieces to art lovers and collectors present at the preview event.

Art Auctions in Lagos have been rather few and far between in the usually vibrant Lagos Art scene, but are gradually becoming some of the most drooled-over events of the thriving Art industry. Thanks to platforms such as the TKMG Art Auction House – which gives artists a chance to showcase their best pieces, and better yet, to sell them off at as high a price as possible!

Guests can stop by the TKMG Auction House all week (from 23rd – 26th July) to view the pieces before the auction. The TKMG Auction House is located at  Terra Kulture Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island Lagos.
