Mydrim Gallery was established in 1992, with the objective of promoting visual art as well as discovering and supporting new talents in Nigeria. Over seventy exhibitions have been fully sponsored and organized by the gallery, including its annual pastel show, the only medium based exhibition of its kind in Nigeria. In collaboration with Bisi Silva on the platform of  the Institute of visual Arts and Culture (IVAC) the gallery organized a series of public lectures on contemporary Arts and Culture delivered by International guest  speakers in various parts of Nigeria. The gallery in partnership with Terra Kulture holds the annual TKMG  Auction of  special and exciting West African Art pieces. Mydrim  Gallery continues to showcase works of Nigerian masters as well as established and emerging artists.
Mydrim Gallery presents selected works by Nigerian artist Bruce Onobrakpeya (b.1932). During his formative years he experienced the significant period of the Nigerian Independence. Onobrakpeya was a leading member of the Zaria Art Society (1958-1962) and contributed to the development of a postcolonial aesthetic for African art. The works presented are from different periods and were part of various exhibitions including, Spirit in Ascent (1968-1978), Symbols of Ancestral Groves (1978-1985), and Sahelian Masquerades (1985-1988). Onobrakpeya exhibited at the Tate Modern, the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and the 44th Venice Biennale.
