I think it's safe to say that nobody has more fun with tape than New York-based artist Aakash Nihalani. Using our lack of depth perception to his advantage, the care-free artist tricks our eyes with his colorful, playful works.

"We all need the opportunity to see the city more playfully, as a world dominated by the interplay of very basic color and shape," says Nihalani. "I try to create a new space within the existing space of our everyday world for people to enter freely, and unexpectedly ‘disconnect’ from their reality.

"I'm not trying to push a certain highbrow logic or philosophy or purposefully communicate through the esoteric medium of art. I work instinctively, trying to follow my gut about the sensation of color and space, and have fun doing it."
