Aakash Nihalani: LANDLINE

Street Art // Wednesday, June 25, 2014
We have featured the sculptural and performance-style works of NYC-based Aakash Nihalani in the print edition and web version of Juxtapoz over the years, and he just sent us images from his new project, Landline. He says of the new work, "In these new outdoor works, colorful bars pass through individuals, connecting them to each other and functioning as extensions of the urban landscape. The participants examine their own insides and connections, a visual expression of both the isolation and community I often feel living in Brooklyn. We spend so much time existing in virtual reality, these works are a visible connection to the real world."

Friend of the magazine Aakash Nihalani has a few new installations in New York that just opened featuring his signature works and transformations with tape. At the Parrish Art Museum, he created tape installations on the exterior of the museum, while he went on inside to Tripoli Gallery and opened a solo show, Aaranged, featuring triangular and geometric tape pieces. Check out some of the works after the jump . . .

New York-based artist, Aakash Nihalani, has fun interactive programs on his website (We suggest you spend some time there), sticking to simple and efficient designs.  One of the artist’s newest projects incorporates window of buildings with simple arithmetic problems, pretty clever.

Aakash Nihalani Goes Tape on Long Island

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 24, 2012
One of the artists that we are excited to meet at Nuart this year is Aakash Nihalani, who has taken a very interesting, geometric, often illusionary approach to public and street work. Recently, he was on Long Island for the Lisa de Kooning Artist in Residence program, and the result of his work is quite impressive.
