January 12—February 9, 2013
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 12, 7—9pm
Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Portal, a series of new works by New York-based artist Aakash Nihalani, in what will be his first solo exhibition at the 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.
