aakash nihalani : at play with tape in nyc
On a Monday morning I want to share something that's energizing and fun and helps to kickstart your week. For today, it is Aakash Nihalani and his geometric artwork with tape. In each of these images, Aakash has applied actual tape to the object pictured, such as the wheels of this ice cream truck above or the building front pictured below.
From his statement online:
I selectively place these graphics around New York to highlight the unexpected contours and elegant geometry of the city itself. All execution of a piece is done on site with little to no planning...We all need the opportunity to see the city more playfully...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...I work instinctively, trying to follow my gut about the sensation of color and space, and have fun doing it...I'm just connecting the dots differently to make my own picture. Others need to see that they can create too, connecting their own dots, in their own places.
