Thank you for visiting Street Art Rat!

Meet Igor Dobrowolski

Igor Dobrowolski is a talented artist born in Jelenia Góra (Deer Mountain), Poland who depicts social and political issues in his paintings and murals. In his work Igor explores topics such as death, depression, war and children, the problems of the poor and homeless and the lack of empathy.
His art should make us appreciate our life, our time, value all the little ordinary moments and make us more empathetic.

Igor kindly answered my questions not only regarding his work.
Enjoy the interview!

When did you start painting/doing street art?
My adventure with paintings began in 2014. 

How did your work develop and how would you describe your style?
My style? I don’t think I’m the right person to judge it.
I try to make my work about poor people, and I’m not talking only about financial issues, give them some voice. Also regarding the destruction of the environment. I just wanted to show true stories…to express appreciation of life, sometimes lack of sense in life, how time passes so quickly. Everything above is very important to me.

I believe that empathy is one of the most important but much-underrated features. Perhaps it is even a virtue.
I do not deceive myself by the salvation of the world, but maybe my work or work of other people, not necessarily in the art world, will help fix something. I hope that my work is a little part of something bigger, something good.

For me, the attempt to conclude a part of hope in all work is very important, because I really believe it’s going to be “better” even after the greatest tragedies, perhaps for life or maybe death. I do not want to sound too lofty, but I just somehow feel I do not know how to put it into better words.

“Over the last few months I’ve been working in secret on a series of works in an old paper mill. This was a dream project, a giant abandoned site where I could paint whatever I saw fit.
These latest works at Yarra Bend have been completed inside the iconic brutalist brick buildings of the old Alphington Paper Mills on Heidelberg Road.” – RONE

One Original Thought

Old but gold. Stencil piece by Banksy that he painted in 2014 on the corner of Jay Street and Water Street in Brooklyn, New York.
The quote in bright red is from the Greek Cynic philosopher Diogenes of Sinope (also known as Diogenes the Cynic).

Who Is 1010?

1010 (pronounce ten-ten) is a Hamburg-based contemporary artist known for his amazing optical illusions that seem like they are portals to other worlds.

There is not too much info about 1010 since he decided to stay anonymous. Originally from Poland, 1010 came to Germany with his parents when he was about eight years of age. After much artistic experimentation, he finally found his true calling in 2010 when he began developing his concept of abstract holes on the walls.*
Although 1010 focuses primarily on street art, he is open to exhibiting his pieces in galleries.
