JONONE NEW YORK TO PARIS

Graffiti artist and painter John Andrew Perello, aka JonOne, grew up in New York
and as a teenager was involved in the explosive graffiti scene of the 80s,
spraying walls and ‘bombing’ trains. He moved to Paris in 1987,
linking into the thriving arts and graffiti scene,
and has remained there ever since.
We caught up with him in Paris
the resulting documentary is a
wonderful insight into a very
charismatic person and the
he encounters as an artist.
Co-directed and produced
with Oliver and Charlie Clark
under our SoWhat collective.
