The Brooklyn based artist Aakash Nihalani‘s street art work consists of mostly isometric rectangles and squares. He uses electrical tape to sketch three-dimensional shapes and selecticly places these graphics on public surfaces around New York. For however brief, Aakash is offering viewrs a chance to step into a different New York than they are used to seeing, and in return, momentarily escape from routine schedules and lives. “I try to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely, and unexpectedly “disconnect” from their reality.” (cf. artist’s statement) Take a closer look at his work at ARTchipel today’s feature.
