Very early on, JonOne could not hold back his expressionist temperament and was one of the few to break the rigid rules of the graffiti tradition. From his innermost being, he felt the urge to no longer spray walls with lettering or characters, but to design them with colourful organic-abstract forms. His outburst can be described in retrospect as innovative and disrupting, but in the early days his art was neither understood nor appreciated.
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 a continuous abstract pattern within the beauty of infinity. This paired with the extreme brilliance of the colours used creates works of art that transcend the boundaries of the canvases and transfer their extraordinary radiance to the space and its viewers. His paintings are – Never the Same.
