Self Portraits by Tape Artist Aakash Nihalani

We’ve previously featured the work of Brooklyn-based tape artist Aakash Nihalani before on Flavorwire; now he’s back with something a little different — a series of playful, geometric self portraits entitled Once Upon a Wall. “I usually don’t include myself in the documentation of my street pieces but I liked the control I had over the interaction with, and within, the work, he recently explained to My Modern Met. “These new shots are a bit more elaborate than most of the street work I do, and they also tell more of a narrative, a kind of struggle. The shapes I’m interacting with in the photos are stand-ins for more universal battles one faces in life, tangible or intangible…relationships, career decisions, and addictions.” Click through to check out the work he’s done so far.
