  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

1010 (tenten) was born in Poland in 1979.
At eight years old he moved to Germany with his family. He lives and works in Hamburg.
He began his art career by drawing imaginary figures, and then began to concentrate on abstract compositions in which he developed his unique and distinctive style.
1010, through the play of chiaroscuro and a studied juxtaposition of colours, creates alienating optical illusions that attract the spectators and lead them mentally towards another dimension, leaving them to reflect on the space-time aspect.
His “Holes” or “Portals” can be seen on the walls of such famous places in the world as Panamà, Miami, Tokyo, Ostend, Hamburg, and Milan, and have made him one of the most widely recognised practitioners of today’s urban art.
Together with his large-scale murals, he also creates smaller works of art, painted in acrylics on various supports or obtained by the superimposition of hand-cut paper. Today 1010 is an international artist with an important series of shows to his name.
