Award-winning artist and writer Victor Ehikhamenor has always given us the gift of beautiful art. But his latest project, Angels and Muse, does something different. It affords us the rare experience of living and working inside his art!

A few weeks ago, he opened up a multi-modal co-working space in Lagos draped with wall murals, stained glasses, and beautiful lighting, making for a stunning visual and immersive experience.

Angel and Muse is part of a growing trend in response to the high cost of real estate in major cities such as Lagos. Individuals and small businesses are relying more and more on shared work spaces where they can have access to state of the art facility and high-speed internet at an affordable rate.

But  Ehikhamenor is taking things a step further by creating a shared work space inspired by art and culture—“a creative hub for nurturing and empowering artistic talent” and providing “support system for expression, productivity and education for the best creative hands and minds in Nigeria and around the world.”

Angels and Muse offers co-working spaces for individual use, in addition to fully mediated rooms for conferences, training events, meetings, book readings, etc.

It also offers a one-of-a-kind creative hide out—two gorgeous and fully-furnished bedrooms where individuals can block out all the noise and experience a private, more immersive creative process.

 

Angels and Muse is a writer’s dream–the perfect place for drafting manuscripts, sharing ideas with fellow creatives, and enjoying the best of what the intellectual community in Lagos has to offer.

Ehikhamenor also sees this project as a chance to give back to the intellectual and artistic community in Lagos. Angels and Muse, through its philanthropic arm called BookArtArea, will host cross-disciplinary events on art, literature and culture and invite some of Nigeria’s most thoughtful, influential, and provocative artists, writers, curators, and collectors to give talks and hold masterclasses for young artists.

A project this grand and innovative had to have taken a village. From the interior decoration, masterminded by Tosin Oshinowo, Olu Amoda’s beautifully crafted doors, Isaac Emokpae’s colorful stained glass, to Richardson Oviebo’s one-of-a-kind gate, Angels And Muse embodies artistic spirit in its purest form and speaks to the collaborative ethos of the space.

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.
