Stop, Pop & Roll

At a glance, Brooklyn-based street artist Aakash Nihalani‘s work looks somewhat like blatant photoshop pieces. But in reality, it’s bright-colored tape physically embedded into various places on the street. Nihalani sees beauty in cinder block, brick buildings or a street sign, otherwise mundane things to the average Joe. He brings out extra dimensions that incite passersby to take a second look at their surroundings, mostly to make sure their mind isn’t playing tricks on them. Nihalani freehands his typically geometric tape designs, sometimes directly on a surface (as quickly as possible), or other times on a cardboard backing to produce a rigid cutout that can stand alone.

Check out Nihalani in action.
