City Cube Street Art

Indian born artist Aakash Nihalani has spent most of his life in the States exploring his unique artistic style. He stumbled across his method one day when he was using a painter’s roll to attach some screen prints to the wall for a student exhibition. There was a pedestal in the space that was casting a cubic shadow on the floor that matched the shapes I was using in his prints, so he outlined the shadow with the tape. and it all made sense in that moment.

When asked what captivates Aakash  about geometric shapes his response is: “Coming from a suburban neighbourhood, I was captivated by the urban architecture of the city when I moved here: big boxes, filled with smaller boxes, an endless network of cubes.”
