Aakash Nihalani – Stop Pop & Roll
Check out Aakash Nihalani’s (RADAR 021 – Tape and Mirrors) new YouTube video “Stop, Pop & Roll” as it follows him through a short installation on New York’s Manhattan streets. Aakash’s name is synonymous with street art, visible at every turn in all five boroughs, finding beauty in the symmetry of the city’s architecture. He might not have a fancy documentary film about his work, or have filled a pop-up store with exotic animals, but from the way things are going, he’s not too far off.
