Art allows individuals to channel their innermost thoughts and feelings into a tangible form, creating a unique narrative that speaks volumes about their personal experiences and perspectives.

It is through art that people find a voice to express what cannot be put into words, whether it is joy, sorrow, love, or anger. Design, on the other hand, transforms everyday objects and spaces into meaningful and functional art, influencing the way we interact with our surroundings and each other.

As the latter half of the year begins, Lost In Lagos Plus Magazine uses this issue to document the shared artistic mission of Nigerian artists and designers: to create a dialogue that transcends borders and cultural differences, uniting people through common themes and experiences.

“Artistic Expressions is dedicated to Nigerian artists and designers who use their talents not only to express themselves but also to make a meaningful impact on society.

Their work reminds us of the transformative power of art and design, and their ability to inspire, provoke, and bring about change,” says Elvis Osifo, the Editor-in-Chief.

Not sure where to start? Delve into the serene yet powerful depictions of Black womanhood by Morenike Olusanya, or explore Babatunde Tribe’s exploration of the blurred boundaries between art and activism.

Gain insights from leading interior designers such as Anderson Edewor, Folakemi Oloye, and Nicole Omatsone, whose works seamlessly blend design with function and identity, creating spaces that are both beautiful and meaningful.

Alternatively, take a behind-the-scenes look at the Lagos Street Art Festival, where public spaces are transformed into platforms for dialogue and engagement, fostering a sense of community and shared purpose.

Every month, a business is featured as the ‘Spot of the Month,’ and this July, Interstyle Home assumes that position. Strategically located at the forefront of Babatunde Jose Street in Victoria Island, Lagos, Interstyle Home is the premier choice for residential and project furnishing. This comprehensive homeware hub provides everything necessary to transform any living space into a stylish and comfortable sanctuary.

Since 2005, Chakra, a Franchise under Interstyle Home has been infusing homes with elegance and nature through its bamboo and hypoallergenic materials. Every item in Chakra is either fully handmade, 100% natural, bamboo-based and completely sustainable, reflecting a deep commitment to both health and the environment.
