Aakash Nihalani's Urban Modifications

Long live the act of re-designing reality.Long live the act of re-designing reality.

"Celebrated for his ephemeral modifications of the urban landscape, Nihalani wields an abstract narrative of isometric shapes and flamboyant hues grounded in quiet irony and idiosyncratic precision.
