Geometric Illusions by Aakash Nihalni

View all 14 Photos

Artist Aakash Nihalni transforms urban spaces into florescent geometric illusions using bright lines of tape; he singles out elements of the city’s landscape and gives them the look of having some dimensions. Such as doorways that pop out of their flat walls, homeless people sitting on seemingly raised platforms and highlighted bricks fall out of place. Nihalani often creates pieces from gut instinct on the spot; he carefully keeps the designs in visual perspective, overriding the real forms of his urban canvas and creates isometric rectangles and squares that appear to float above the surface. Many of his pieces even look computer generated because it’s so well done, striving to have fun with his art Nihalni seeks to inspire people to re-examine their daily environment and look at it with a fresh perspective.
