Dominican-born graffiti artist and painter John Andrew Perello, aka JonOne, was born in New York (https://www.riseart.com/art/cityscapes/new-york) in the 1960s. A child of Harlem, JonOne started out by bombing the trains and walls of his neighbourhood at the age of seventeen.

As a self-taught artist, he made the transition from urban media to canvas (a medium with which he exhibited all over the world), producing works that were clearly influenced by his experiences (hip hop, the street, the underground) and by modern painting. In an innovative style that surpasses the laws dictated by graffiti (street art, urban culture), his pieces address his 'freestyle' (the freedom he advocates above all else), his watchword that imposes no limits.

In his paintings, space is used entirely. Colour appears to be JonOne's lifeblood, his palette rich and vivid, the tones and contrasts revealing subtle interplay of nuances, where in a harmonious composition that appears as spontaneous as it is measured, the shapes knot and untie, undulate or become straight. There is symmetry and asymmetry, repetition and unification, and the line is mastered with precision and suppleness. Each of her canvases is an [abstract] improvisation (https://www.riseart.com/art/abstract), whose brilliance conveys a joie de vivre.
