Urban Street Art from Aakash Nihalani.
Many artists today are applying they’re skills to altering the urban landscape. Sometimes they’re trying to make a point, and sometimes they’re just redecorating. Artist Aakash Nihalani decorated this stop sign with an intricate geometric flower border with nothing more than cardboard, tape, and a box cutter. Imagine what you could do with a laser cutter.

Nihalani’s portfolio includes an impressive range of work from painting to installations, but I must admit that I’m the most drawn to his street art.
