Tumblr Artist

Aakash Nihalani | on Tumblr (b.1986, USA) - Play Ground (2010) / Through / Rainborough II / Armslength (2011) Paper tape and cardboard, Brooklyn, New York

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. You can also visit artist’s website or follow him on Tumblr for more work.
