Using fluorescent tape as a starting point, Aakash Nihalani creates seemingly-flat, geometric works that become activated by a human presence. When human subjects interact with his pieces, Nihalani adds another layer to his installations and street art, creating playful photographs that defy our common-sense understanding of physical laws. Nihalani, who lives, works and exhibits mostly in New York, will be traveling to Rome next week for his first Italian solo show at Wunderkammern, “Vantage.” The exhibition opens April 5, so stay tuned for photos of his upcoming street art and gallery installations in Rome in the coming weeks. In the mean time, check out some of Nihalani’s recent artworks below.
