Stumbled upon this music discovery meets street art installation hybrid. These boxes have been placed around Tokyo, London, LA, NYC and Vienna.

Aakash

Was excited to see this new work by Aakash. We did an episode of Radar with him a few years back (see below). Love the way Aakash uses simple materials in very effective ways. For those in NYC, Aakash has a solo show running from Jan 13th – Feb 9th at Jonathan LeVine .
