Aakash Nihalani

Just came across this guy Aakash Nihalani. I'll be honest Im not usually impressed with the sort of geometric fashion that everyone seems to be adopting right now in art and illustration, not because I dont like the aesthetics, I think there are just too many people doing it for it to be interesting anymore. But this guy is a total breath of fresh air. I can see why he's using these shapes, how they have meaning and making a genuine statement/reaction to their surroundings, they are beautiful and they just 'fit'. It feels a bit humbling-Im not sure why-like your able to view the world through another artists eyes. Anyway I never thought Id appreciate this type of art but it really makes me smile :D
