Last year, the award-winning artist and writer Victor Ehikhamenor opened a multi-modal co-working space in Lagos called Angels and Muse. Located at 5, Sumbo Jibowu Street, off Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, it is a marvelous one, walls draped with murals, stained glass, and beautiful lighting, making for a stunning visual and immersive experience.

The creative hub, which offers bedrooms for individual use as well as rooms for conferences, training events, meetings and book readings, is set to be featured in the Netflix reality TV show Amazing Interiors. The series, currently in its second season, shows houses with ordinary-looking exteriors which then stun the visitor on entering them.

Ehikhamenor shared the news on Instagram.

The interior decoration in Angels and Muse is by Tosin Oshinowo, the beautifully crafted doors by Olu Amoda, the colorful stained glass by Isaac Emokpae, and the gates by Richardson Oviebo. Angels and Muse will be one of the more stunning features in the series.

Angels and Muse has a philanthropic arm, BookArtArea, which hosts cross-disciplinary events on art, literature and culture and has invited some of Nigeria’s most thoughtful, influential, and provocative artists, writers, curators, and collectors to give talks and hold masterclasses for young artists. Most recently, it hosted the writing masterclass by Teju Cole, Emmanuel Iduma, and Ayobami Adebayo.

Congratulations to Victor Ehikhamenor.
