In his characteristic style, artist 1010's new murals are brightening city streets with wavy bands of color and gradients that make viewers feel like they're seeing through walls. The anonymous, Germany-based graffiti artist has rolled out new masterpieces in the last year– including a gallery show in San Francisco and walls in Panama City, where the artist recently sought relief from his home country's harsh winter.
Using just spray paint, 1010 tunnels through walls with his illusions, drawing our eyes along the masterfully shaded color bands until we feel like we're staring into a never-ending portal. The Panama City editions includes fun, spring-themed colors, which deviate from the artist's preference for darker, bolder hues. The vibrant pinks, oranges and aquas make us wish the murals were portals to transport us to a beach bathed in sunshine.
