In the 1980s, in New York, JonOne digested the past of the graffiti scene which was mainly active in the subway and in the street. In a world compartmentalized by style, generating norms, JonOne establishes freedom in axis mundi. Before leaving for Paris in 1987, the invention of Freestyle frees the lettering from its heaviness and inscribes it more intensely in abstract painting. Following the steps necessary to the realization of graffiti - the sketch, the filling, the contours, followed by the setting in volume -, he proceeds by retention. Keeping only a summary drawing, underlying architecture where he lays the spatial bases of his piece, as well as its colored flow, he creates floating signs, suspended in space, substituting to the statism of the reading the circulation of visual energies.
