Nikhail Asnani takes 2nd place in the “Abstract My World” Show (Photography & Digital Art Category)!
Nikhail Asnani from USA takes 2nd Place in the Photography & Digital Art category of our “Abstract My World” show with his work “Dancefloor”! Great feedback from our juror Robert MacNeil: “Close your eyes and you are there, you can feel the music, the motion and the energy. Fantastic abstract image.”
“My light paintings are a contemplation of love, life, frustration and hope. They are made through performance art and long exposure, where I find myself able to embody poses, characters or situations I might not find in real life. It is a therapeutic way for me to be myself, showcase my greatest flaws, my most admirable strengths, which is hard for an introvert but easy in the comfort of the darkness. Insecurities fade into a glow.”
