Outstanding Art Gallery showcasing the myriad of talents of local Nigerian Artists from across the nation. Breathtaking, exquisite, memorable, and downright phenomenal artistry by Yinka Fatunmbi and his artist colleagues. Situated in Adamasingba Stadium in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. World Class artistry, and professionalism. An absolute gem of a find!! This is a must stop location for any visit to Ibadan, tourism, business, or a return home to family. Lovely art for purchase as souvenirs, to decorate homes, workplaces, offices and your outdoors. Mediums include canvas, wood, stone, and metal, to name a few. Yinka is well known in Ibadan, as THE champion of Nigerian art in Ibadan, the largest city in West Africa, in terms of Territory. Ibadan is fondly known as the city of rusted roofs, and is home to Nigeria's leading tertiary institution: The University of Ibadan (UI), the "Harvard" of Nigeria.

Entry into UI is highly competitive, and UI hosts a robust university level art program to fortify Ibadan with a cadre of highly skilled visual and performing artists. This makes Topfat Art Gallery well placed in the epi-center of talent for Oyo state. A little over an hour from Lagos, Nigeria, Topfat's Art Gallery is a necessary stop, if time permits, when visiting Lagos As well! It is well worth the drive, and Yinka will connect you to local artists that can capture your imagination, engage your soul in African beauty, and fulfill your appetite for Nigerian Art, West African art and African art at large! Don't miss this stop, you would be missing a gem! Prices are much more affordable than the costs of Art in Lagos.

Be sure to ask about the wood, stone, and metal sculptor Aisien Harrison, also situated in Adamashingba stadium. Aisien has carved wood, stone, and metal for over 30 years, a descendant of a family of wood sculptors in Benin, Nigeria, who later enhanced his skills with academic training. Yinka has named Aisien's work as outstanding, phenomenal, and superb. Also inquire about Bolaji Aremu, a visual artist who works on canvas and creates stunning, impressive, and intoxicating artistry of vivid colors, uniquely applies textures to canvas to capture your heart and mind. Both Yinka, Bolaji, and Aisien are virtuoso's in contemporary Nigerian Art, West African Art, and African Art at large.

Pamper and treat yourself with a visit to Topfat Art Gallery and be sure to stroll the Adamashingba complex to see the other artists at work in the shops on the perimeter. Ask Yinka to let you know of the places you don't want to miss in and around the complex. He will proudly direct you to the neighboring artists whose works you would want to see, once he identifies your taste.

This is the best place to purchase, and design souvenirs to take away from Nigeria, or to commission artwork that exceeds your expectations. Portraits and artwork can be tailored to capture your Nigerian/West African memories. Sculptures can be commissioned, and creative mediums are used. You can buy ready made or commission works on various mediums affordably. If you want to commission art work, visit this place early in your trip, to give adequate time for the work to be created. And they will meet your agreed timeline, guaranteed! Attractive, professional, souvenirs can be hard to find in Ibadan, Nigeria. This is your place for that.

This is a must-see tourist destination, and a hub for the best of the best art in Ibadan, Nigeria, if not the Southwestern region of Nigeria, no questions asked!
