Lagos 2180A.D.

Lagos 2180A.D.

We are slightly obsessed with AfroFuturistic projects and this one is no exception. Produced by Brooklyn native, Lekan Jeyifo, the work depicts Lagos in the future. Absolutely brilliant!

was hired by Wale Oyejide, founder of the inimitable “Ikire Jones” menswear fashion line to create a series of illustrations that combine the crowded and chaotic knot of improvised settlements and ramshackle high-rises that define many burgeoning African Mega-cities such as Lagos, Nigeria with imposing and futuristic super-structures straight out of science-fiction.

    hello i am the artist of these images.
    normally i would love the exposure
    but could you remove them please.
    they are part of a brand that has
    not yet launched. i assume you
    got them from my behance page
    but i had not intended to publish
    these images yet. i tried to contact
    you guys via email but the link
    isnt working. if you have any
    questions please email me:
