As the sun shines bright and nature blooms, JonOne’s artworks come alive with energy and vibrancy. His captivating pieces capture the essence of this season, reflecting the rich colors and lush landscapes that surround us.
The works presented in the exhibition show the artist’s energetic, cryptic and polychrome canvases. Multiple layers and thick brushstrokes adorn his large-sized and explosive paintings. Profoundly rooted in the graffiti scene of the 1980s he made excellent use of his obsession with tagging. What might appear as abstract lines, cryptic shapes or intentional drips of paint to the viewer, actually represent his own tag ‚JONONE‘, sometimes also in variations as ‚JONONE ROCK‘.
At a closer look, letters and even his tag are recognizable. The regularity of repeating his tag over and over again, is not monotonous, in contrary, it is divers, complex and rich. Eventually the writing develops into an abstract pattern within the beauty of infinity.
JonOne’s highly expressive and thick brushstrokes blends with his iconic writing and tagging practice. The fusion of vibrant colors and expressive gestures manifest the continuous change of life. Each piece tells a story, evoking a range of emotions and capturing different moods.
JonOne created for himself a universe where art becomes a powerful means of self-expression.
With each brushstroke, JonOne creates a visual symphony that resonates with the joy and vitality of summer. Embark on a journey of emotions and moods inspired by nature’s grandeur.
