Nike Davies-Okundaye aka "'Nike Davies'" aka "'Nike Twin Seven Seven'" aka "'Nike Olaniyi'" is a Nigerian batik and textile designer, considered to be the foremost designer on the west coast of Africa.Davies-Okundaye, was brought up amidst the traditional weaving and dying as practised in her home town of Ogidi, Kogi State, in North Central Nigeria, though she has become known for a modern approach to traditional themes in her colourful batik and paintings. Over the past twenty years she has given workshops on traditional Nigerian textiles to audiences in the United States and Europe. Finding that the traditional methods of weaving and dying that had been her original inspiration were fading in Nigeria, Davies set about launching a revival of this aspect of Nigerian culture, building art centres offering free courses for young Nigerians to learn traditional arts and crafts. Her son Olabayo Olaniyi, College of Santa Fe graduate, is also an artist. Nike has more than 150 students in Europe and America. She is also a philanthropist.
