Kolly Galllery Presents: John JONONE Perello "Following my path" (Zürich, Switzerland)

Read from the press release below:


19th April 2018
6pm – 8pm

Your own mythology, the urban legend that you associated with your name, you wrote it, you painted it.“ – John ‚JonOne‘ Perello, 2014.

In John ‚JonOne‘ Perello’s solo exhibition entitled Following My Path the artist shares his personal pursuit within his expressive paintings. Kolly Gallery is honored to present John ‚JonOne‘ Perello’s unique, multifaceted and personal body of work from April 19 to May 12, 2018.

The works presented in the exhibition show the artist’s energetic, cryptic and polychrome canvases. Multiple layers and thick brushstrokes adorn his large-sized and explosive paintings. Profoundly rooted in the graffiti scene of the 1980ies he made excellent use of his obsession with tagging. What might appear as abstract lines, cryptic shapes or intentional drips of paint to the viewer, actually represent his own tag ‚JONONE‘, sometimes also in variations as ‚JONONE ROCK‘. At a closer look, letters and even his tag are recognizable. The regularity of repeating his tag over and over again, is not monotonous, in contrary, it is divers, complex and rich. Eventually the writing develops into an abstract pattern within the beauty of infinity.

John ‚JonOne‘ Perello’s artistic essence is repeating his tag, his signature as well as his name and eventually – following his path.
