Akila‘s first solo show in NYC was named after the ’59 Gidget quote, “You better get out of the sun before you melt.”

Endlessly inspired by the nostalgic feeling of French films, Akila named her top 7:
The Dreamers
Swimming Pool
2 days in Paris
Blue is the Warmest Colour
Don Juan
Blow Up

The show was shot in various locations around the planet and features lots of pretty, almost naked girls. At the launch, presented by Billabong, there will be limited-edition zines available to bring home and admire (ogle). Saturday the 15th of March at Human Gallery in Brooklyn from 8-11. See you there!
