Aakash Nihalani is a New York City based artist who uses coloured tape to create his unique art. He is visually creating 3D images on two-dimensional surfaces.
“The repetition of isometric squares and rectangles becomes visually pleasing to the eye, conveying complexities such as movement and space by something so simple as the placement of a line.
Initially, your focus is drawn to the use of repetition and varying patterns, yet Nihalani has taken it one step further. For example, by incorporating a live model, Nihalani successfully delivers an additional element to his art, transforming the viewer’s immediate thoughts into what he intended to convey for that specific piece. Nihalani’s art is clearly meant to captivate the viewer’s attention.”*
Nihalani wants to give people a momentary escape from the routine and the expected.
The viewer is given a momentary opportunity to live a little more playfully, within the “new” space created by Nihalani.
His art’s message is: Train your mind to look beyond the mundane in life and allow it to become something extraordinary.
