John “JonOne” Perello grew up in Harlem where graffiti and tags were seen in everyday life. Now living in Paris, JonOne has transferred his work from the streets of New York to the “limitations” of a canvas (some extremely large) and he now fancies more brushstrokes than air sprays.
Here is a short portrait of JonOne as he prepares for his first solo exhibit in the U.S. You can see his art displayed at Fabien Castanier Gallery in Studio City, CA from November 3 – December 2, 2012 www.castaniergallery.com
