Focus Years: 2007 | Country: Nigeria
Nike Okundaye is an internationally renowned artist specialising in adire, the traditional Yoruba indigo art from western Nigeria. She attributes her strength and success to her own early life – losing her mother at six, escaping forced marriage at 13, and overcoming a polygamous marriage, physical abuse, and poverty. Today Nike’s work is shown in museums around the world, and she trains disenfranchised young Nigerian women – including former sex workers in Italy - in adire, pottery and weaving, giving them the skills to earn their own, independent living.
