See Photos from Explore The Republic; The Art Edition

On Saturday 20th October 2018, we had the second event in our Explore The Republic series tagged: The Art Edition.

For this event, we partnered with Bunmi Sami, artist and founder of ArtnLounge.  We discovered Bunmi on Instagram when she reached out to us. We came to admire her work and decided to partner with her for our next event.

Bunmi is a paint artist who guides novice/amateur artists to make beautiful artworks even though they haven’t painted before. 

Bback to our event, we choose Bambukka, an African grill spot in Lekki Phase 1 to host the event.  The owners were really excited to collaborate with us (shout out to sister owners Jojo and Esme – who signed up her kids for  the event).

By the way, Bambukka serves good food and drinks at great prices.  

The event was supposed to start at 2:PM but for the late arrival of some of our guests, the event started some time after 3:PM. In fact, the painting session was divided into 2 as our early guests started to paint the famous Lekki-Ikoyi bridge before the late comers joined in to do their own painting.

The event was a sold out one and all who participated had so much fun.
