Aakash Nihalani At Wunderkammern
Aakash Nihalani's newest exhibition, Vantage, just opened at Wunderkammern in Rome, Italy. Vantage showcases site-specific installations at the gallery and complimented Nihalani's well known street-based work throughout Rome. Vantage will run until 17 may 2014.
Most artists use a canvas in order to paint on a limited surface. Like a painter I start with the canvas, but I also explore the ways to sculpt and paint around it, using it as a visual object in and of itself. These paintings, like the majority of my work, are created with a specific point of view – a frontal one – where the illusion exists and the shapes seem to come to life. –Aakash Nihalani
