The place for all AOL news and updates.
Aug 9th 2012
Tuesday night, AOL Artists teamed up with Artlog's Summer Art Pass for an exclusive evening of interactive art and a sneak peak of the AOL Artists collection. Upcoming AOL Artist Aakash Nihalani, who is featured in the collection, spoke about his artistic process and how he got started in the art field. Prior to the event, Aakash created a custom installation which was placed in the AOL office for the event's guests. Throughout the night, attendees could Instagram photos of themselves engaging with the piece for a chance to win a print of his upcoming canvases for AOL. The night ended with Aakash handing out neon tape and encouraging everyone to create ephemeral installations throughout the office, inspired by Aakash's infamous "street art."
Aakash Nihalani is a Brooklyn-based artist who has gained critical acclaim for his installation work. His most recent clients include Lacoste Live and Facebook. In Fall 2012, four of his original artworks will launch on AOL.com. AOL Artists actively commissions artists from around the world to create original works of art for the AOL brand. To date, 104 artists have been commissioned to create over 260 works of art in a variety of mediums including, painting, sculpture, drawing, and more.
