At the age of 17 he began working in the world of Graffiti with his childhood friend White Man.Jonone first began painting on the New York Subway trains. He soon made a name for his style and created abstract works influenced by movement color, and the energy of the city. His style set him part from others, as at that time the majority of other graffiti writers were working in more figurative styles. In 1985 he began working on canvas in a search to one day leave behind a trace that would stand the tests of time. In the same year the gallery Rick Libbrizzi exposed Jonone’s work for the first time.
