Bolaji Alonge’s Street Flowers of Lagos at Temple Muse

Magma, Bolaji Alonge, 2020

TEMPLE MUSE celebrates the beginning of spring with a new garden installation for the season – a fresh start after the craziness of 2020 to tempt your appetite for all things beautiful. For the official month of love and that special someone in your heart (including yourself), the space has been themed ‘Love Garden’ for February – take a magical journey, celebrating the nature of love.”

Located in the heart of Lagos, Temple Muse is one of Africa’s leading lifestyle concept stores. You can take a piece of the Love Garden home, with the “Street Flowers of Lagos” forever immortalized in hi-gloss acrylic and canvas Limited Edition Prints by Eyes of a Lagos Boy. 

This collection of photos by Bolaji Alonge is a splash of intense colour and emotions. He uses macro photography to show the inner world of street flowers of Lagos. They symbolize the beauty of nature, both fragile and strong at the same time. Together with Lagosians, they stand proudly in the midst of the urban jungle. Alonge shows beauty where it is least expected.

Temple Muse is located on 2 Musa Yar’adua street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
