Re-visiting Lagos

I just got back from a two-week stint in Lagos and find myself re-charged and re-vitalised. it's difficult to describe the vibe that is Lagos, the energy, the is so uniquely Lagos.

I was happy to immerse myself in the madness. the endless traffic jams, the aggressive hawkers that make it easy for busy workaholics to shop from the comfort of their air-conditioned cars. only in Lagos I always say can you see such sights.

I loved and hated every minute of the stress and wahala. but it gives you a natural high, makes your senses stand alert because you just have to be smart or risk being outsmarted in Lagos. eko for show!!

I achieved quite a bit now i sit here thinking about it but while I was there it fel as if I didn't achive a single thing.

I started discussions regarding representation with 7 artists, I got five cds of images and a few cv's as well.

Basically, I have launched myself back into the arts and my past credibility still serves me well.

I am all set to achieve great things at Africore but i want to do it systematically and lay a sound foundation that will form a solid base on which to grow and develop the gallery.
