The US-American street artist Aakash Nihalani is one of the best-known representatives of the new street-art trend, who works with the medium of tape in public places around New York.

Aakash explains:

My work is created in a reaction to what we readily encounter in our lives, sidewalks and doorways, building and bricks. I’m just connecting the dots differently to make my own picture. Others need to see that they can create too, connecting their own dots, in their own places.

Diligent volunteers – for a good reason, will film everything he sticks: the transience of his street art is extremely high! One wrong step and a great yet simple combination of lines is gone – temporary art pure, though no less significant than the work of other artists.

Showing the growing number of artists, the colourful sticky tape and its three-dimensional-looking objects has become a worldwide movement.
