The canvas specially made by JonOne for Daum, becomes a volume painting. The highlighted tag contrasts with the matte look of the cut and the brush splatter has turned crystal clear. The games of transparency and the different shades of blue create a strong work that gives a new dimension to the artist's work.

About John Andrew Perelloa
Born in 1963 in New York in the United States, lives and works in Paris. John Andrew Perello known as JonOne or Jon 156, founded in 1984 the group 156 All Starz after having started, at the age of 17, in the world of graffiti. JonOne creates abstract works influenced by movement, color, energy, while other graffiti artists create figurative works. Self-taught artist, JonOne began painting on canvas in 1985 because it offered the possibility of leaving an imprint in time. He moved to Paris in 1987 and worked in a collective workshop with the pioneers of Street art. From 1990 onwards, collective and personal exhibitions followed all over the world. His paintings are an explosion of colors, JonOne describes himself as an “abstract expressionist graffiti painter”.
Daum confirms his imprint in urban art by collaborating with this major artist. The manufacture gives carte blanche to the artist by offering him a new means of expressing his creativity. From a graffiti and a tag, he creates crystal works imprinted with his colorful art. The famous crystal factory and JonOne decide to combine their art and their passion for color to create exceptional pieces with deep or tangy shades, which play with reliefs and reflections of light. An unexpected dialogue is born from this meeting between the world of street art and the Daum universe.
