On Friday, Poster Boy collaborator and tape laying street artist Aakash Nihalani unveiled a solo show in Brooklyn. The work consisted of the signature cube-type stuff he does on the street as well as some laser etched mirrors and painted canvasses. Like many street art exhibits in gallery settings though, the justification for the work is hard to reconcile when the illegal nature of it is removed. Similar to the major flaw of the 11 Spring Street project, when sanctioned, the work lacks punch. Luckily, he’s not moving exclusively into the gallery scene and will still create stuff for the public which ironically, will likely be worth more than than the more polished stuff. More photos after the jump, including our favorite spotted on the way to the gallery.
