The Nigerian painting that made the Guinness World Records

Ecole de Dessin meaning “School of Art” in french, put Nigeria in the world map by unveiling the largest painting by numbers in Lagos State, Nigeria, on 17 November 2010 in celebration of Guinness World Records Day 2010. 

The painting by numbers measures 3,130.55 m² (33,696 ft² 138.2 in²) and was created by 350 volunteers.
The painting represents the map of Nigeria, the logo of 350.org in the middle of the map, the flag of Nigeria (green, white, green) which was painted around the map.This same painting has been featured conspicuously in the 2011, 2012 and the 2013 Guinness World Records Books.

They are inviting you all to view this masterpiece that made history.
This iconic painting would be on exhibition at the Methodist Boys High School, Victoria Island from the 10th of October to the 12th of October 2012 starting from 2pm.
Also there would be a Press Conference which holds on the 12th of October 2012 at 4pm. In attendance will be the Governor of Lagos State, top Government Functionaries and other esteemed dignitaries.
Their mission is to create a platform through which Nigerian Art Students can contribute to the development of the country, and also where art can be used as a tool to positively affect lives.

Here's a picture of the painting that made the Guinness World Records Books.


The event is in partnership with the Lagos State Government.
