After much artistic experimentation, he finally found his true calling in 2010 when he began developing his concept of abstract holes on the walls. 1010 made a practice out of creating three-dimensional damage-like shapes on walls, producing amazing pieces that trick the viewers into believing that there’s an actual hole set before them.
