Of Dominican origin and raised in Harlem, JonOne began doing graffiti on the walls of his neighbourhood at the age of 17 under the name Jon156. In 1987 he moved to Paris, the city where he currently lives and works.
The unique style that defines JonOne’s work, between Graffiti and Abstract Expressionism, derives from the combination of three fundamental elements: calligraphy, colour and the pictorial matter, which together inundate the entire surface of the work.
He is inspired by the dynamism and vitality of the city, the artist’s works emanate an extraordinary energy, thanks precisely to the continuous intersection of lines and the extreme brilliance of the colours used.
JonOne's artworks are available thanks to our partnership with Wunderkammern Gallery (Rome/Milan).
