Artist Bio:

E1000’s work can be regarded as a prime example of the complex and interwoven nature of graffiti and street art; with a distinctively minimalist style that incorporates simple, clean lines and vivid colours, E1000’s work exudes a playfulness and optimism that the general public seldom correlates with graffiti. The Spanish street artist has considerable experience intervening on all manner of urban surfaces – walls, grounds, manholes, etc. – to create his signature bold geometric pieces.

Physical Description:

The Spanish street artist has considerable experience intervening on all manner of urban surfaces – walls, grounds, manholes, etc. – to create his signature bold geometric pieces. Working with the patterns already present within the surface, E1000’s work illuminates the beauty of previously neglected urban spaces, encouraging locals to rediscover their communities and view their surroundings through a new lens.

Iconography:

This project – a cooperation between Street Art Museum Amsterdam, Stadsdeel Nieuw-West and Wij Zijn Plein ’40 – ‘45 – was exceptionally monumental for us here at SAMA, as it provided us with the opportunity to add the first ‘ground mural’ into our repertoire. E1000’s work can be regarded as a prime example of the complex and interwoven nature of graffiti and street art; with a distinctively minimalist style that incorporates simple, clean lines and vivid colours, E1000’s work exudes a playfulness and optimism that the general public seldom correlates with graffiti.
