The art of Aakash Nihalani was brought to my attention earlier this year and I’ve been hooked on his work ever since. The New York-born, Jersey-raised, Brooklyn-based artist initially went to school for political science but ended up finding his calling early, finishing with a BFA. “I had creative inclinations as a kid but art as a career wasn’t an option the way I was brought up. Instead I was steered towards professions like law or medicine. When I did switch to art, I think being an outsider gave me a fresh perspective on what art was, or could be, which allowed me to experiment freely,” he explains. (via Design Milk)
