German Street Artist 1010 is a well recognized face when it comes to contemporary street art. His designs will leave you in awe, inviting you in and making you wonder what’s on the other side.
His optical illusions are so well thought out and executed that they can leave you standing there for hours, days or even months while contemplating the abyss that is drawn out in front of you. Alone and frightened, you start to feel a bit dizzy. After a while you try to enter this portal, dying to find out what’s on the other side. You take run for it, and… SMASH yourself head first into a brick wall…
OK, I may be exaggerating a bit. but you have to agree with me on the fact that this artist kicks some serious ass when it comes to designing these portals. The colors used are chosen carefully to adapt as well as possible to the ambient lighting and the surface colors and textures on which the design will be brought to life. The shapes and shadows of all these designs are placed in a way as to really give that impression of depth.
Below are some of my favorites :
