Aakash Nihalani – ‘Portal’ Exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Aakash Nihalani – ‘Portal’ Exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Lasciatevi stupire dall’incredibile immaginario di Aakash Nihalani. Come già anticipato, nei due spazi della Jonathan LeVine Gallery di New York sono in mostra ‘Portal’ e ‘Virtual Reality’ rispettivamente le nuove esibizioni di Aakash Nihalani e di Haroshi. Dell’ultima vi abbiamo mostrato le immagini giusto ieri, andiamo ora a dare un’occhiata a quanto di buono proposto dal primo.
Conosciuto per i suoi intricati lavori con il nastro fluorescente, l’artista si distingue per l’eccentricità delle sue forme geometriche, le colorate installazioni proposte infatti hanno un sapore tridimensionale, sono geometrie che attraversano la città e danno nuovo vita alle pareti.
Nel corpo della mostra sono presenti nuove installazioni multi dimensionali, sia su tela che su giganteschi pannelli di legno, se vi trovate in zona lo show rimarrà aperto fino al 9 Febbraio, nel frattempo date un occhiata all’ampissima gallery.

Known in the street art community for his fluorescent tape interventions, Nihalani combines a bright color palette with geometric abstract shapes, resulting in striking contrasts within the context of the urban landscape. Expanding on his exploration of form and space, the artist continues to build upon this body of work in his studio practice, through works on canvas and wooden panels.

Nihalani’s bold, flat shapes continue to evolve into complex multi-dimensional patterns, often producing intricate optical illusions that challenge the viewer’s relationship with their surrounding environment. The imagery appears to extend or recede from the surface of the picture plane through the artist’s carefully developed variations on color theory and architectural elements with influences of Op art and Mathematical perspectives.

The artist enjoys the interactive effect of his work in the gallery setting as well as on the street. His exhibitions often include site-specific installations created with tape, similar to his public interventions, which complement his paintings and freestanding sculptures. The accessible quality of Nihalani’s imagery connects with a wide audience, much like the adhesive nature of his original medium.
