JonOne (b. 1963) is one of the most influential urban artists of his generation. He grew up in Harlem, New York, where he discovered the thrill and personal expression found through painting in the streets and on train cars. A critical moment in the history of graffiti occurred during this time in the 1980s, and JonOne chose to transport his New York graffiti roots to the streets of Paris when he was only 20 years old. Establishing his life in France, he has since grown his career and reputation for the past 40 years with a unique style, unparalleled in his genre.

Akin to Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, JonOne’s pieces exhibit an enormous sense of movement and color. His compositions combine freestyle, precise strokes, repetition and texture for a uniquely balanced yet dynamic visual experience. His paintings represent a new era of contemporary artists who have moved beyond their roots as graffiti writers to establish themselves as painters. His works are at once universal revelations and deeply personal musings on life’s struggles and triumphs. His paintings take you on a journey through his story – abound with spirit and the endless desire for exploration and discovery.

JonOne has worked on a number of collaborations and projects in recent years, lending original designs of his style to notable companies such as Perrier, Air France, Lacoste, Guerlain, Hennessy, and LG. He has also exhibited at several important galleries and institutions, including the Fondation Cartier for Contemporary Art and the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2015, he was given the Legion of Honor from France, celebrating the achievement with a painting “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité” which was unveiled at the Palais Bourbon, the seat of the French National Assembly.
