From the start he has known how to impose his abstract style that makes him stand out. With special guests: Ikon, Mai Lucas, Mikos, Mark Newton, Psy, Quik (Lin Felton)
The Magda Danysz Gallery keeps on supporting street art like it has been doing for a long time by welcoming the incredible graffiti artist JonOne, one of the first to bring graffiti to France in the 1980. Be it for his talent as a graffiti artist or an abstract painter, JonOne is undeniably praised for his work and paintings worldwide. The colors, overflowing with communicative energy, give the impression of a modern stained glass painting. JonOne starting doing graffiti on the walls and trains in the poor Harlem neighbourhoods where he grew up. “The subway’s a museum that goes back and forth through town”. He’s one of the first New-York graffiti artists in Paris, and you can feel the American as well as the European influence on his work; however he manages to find his own style, “Each one of my paintings is an abstract improvisation” he says of his work.
