"JonOne, Boxed in 2013" at the Bernard Magrez Cultural Institute, Bordeaux.
At the end of the 1970s, John Andrew Perello, alias JonOne, started drawing grafitti in New York.
Here, he met A-One who had previously trained with Jean-Michel Basquiat before founding the 156 All Starz group. It wasn’t until the middle of the 80s that he started painting on canvas, attempting to reproduce the founding element of his particular style: the vision of a graffiti subway carriage, moving so fast that it creates streaks of colour in its wake.
