Nigerian artistry is a unique, thoroughly researched and richly illustrated guide on different art forms in Nigeria. Reading Nigerian Artistry is like travelling through Nigeria.

'... a narrative epic and a refeference work offering comprehensive information on aspects of Nigerian art. Rich in images, it is easy and interesting to read. Pat Oyelola takes us on a journey through time and the art of this geographical region called Nigeria. We can understand... how these art forms with their techniques and styles have been affected by the dynamics of change thus becoming poorer or richer'-Bruce Onobrakpeya
