Fast cars, real estate and fine art came together on Sunday the 7th of Jan, 2016 at the fast developing Eko Atlantic. The informal networking hotspot was arranged with the title “For the Love of Cars” and had one of its key objectives as raising awareness on the progress made in the development of Eko Atlantic especially in the circles of owners of exotic cars and bikes.

Porsches, Rolls Royces, Mercedes cars, flashy bikes, the almost impossible reality of the beautiful Eko Atlantic, beautiful pieces of art, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, nice ambience, good music, ample networking opportunities.

The list of highlights of the day is never ending. The event was fun-filled and business was handled as interested guests were given chauffeur driven tours of Eko Atlantic and visits to the buildings ready to be occupied.

As the day went on, guests with a need for speed were out having fun in the sun, either racing cars or bikes or cheering on those who raced. The bikers put on a show of stunts which was well appreciated by all. Social media went into overdrive with the hashtag #EkoAtlantic trending on Instagram and several Snapchat videos from the event went viral.

Guests who would rather chill were under the shade, did so under the giant Newton & David marquee, viewing the beautiful art pieces and having interesting conversations with the artists who had their work on display – yes the artists were there live!

With the amount of interest Nigerian Art is getting locally and internationally, it comes as no surprise that there was a presence of the Art community at the event. There were paintings from exciting artists John MADU and Dennis Osadebe. Photographer and painter Elizabeth Ofili was also on hand with beautiful photographs from her “From the Back Seat” series which all tied in perfectly to theme of the event on cars.

Infusing art to spice up the event is one of the offerings from BizArt Ventures, a fast rising Art Promotion and Artist Management establishment exploring novel opportunities to showcase Nigerian and African Art to the World.

David Oamen of BizArt Ventures said “The idea is to put Nigerian art in the best light possible so as to showcase the richness and technique of Nigerian art and ensure the welfare of the artist is not neglected.”

When all was said and done, guests left on a high after a Sunday Funday at Eko Atlantic knowing that Eko Atlantic city is here and the time to buy into it is NOW!
