I want to see some street art by Aakash Nihalani


Search
: Aakash Nihalani

Why
: On the Cracked.com list of 17 Images You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped (Part 6):
#13. Rendering Art Museum: 86%...

This is one that looks less like Photoshop and more like bad MS Paint. But it's another one of those forced perspective works of art where strategically-placed lines give the illusion of a floating box (hint: it only works if you're standing in the right spot). In this case it's just bright green tape...
...and the skill of street artist Aakash Nihilani who randomly tapes misleading cubes in public spaces presumably for the sole purpose of freaking out passersby.
Answer: These are all from his website:
