0 Comments

The Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping reveals its poster and is surrounded by a New York artist of world renown. JonOne, follows Robert Combas, Paola Pivi, Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille. His work in shimmering colors, halfway between graffiti and abstract expressionism will be displayed in Paris and throughout the duration of the event. The rendezvous is given, the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping, competition 5 * show jumping, will find the Champ de Mars, June 30, July 1 and 2 next around a sporting, urban and cultural atmosphere. Open to all, this major stage of the international circuit of the Longines Global Champions Tour brings together more than 30,000 spectators each year at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

This new artistic collaboration with JonOne is at the heart of the DNA of the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping as the bishop Virginie Coupérie Eiffel, President and Founder of the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping: "I had a real favorite for JonOne from our first encounter in his studio multicolored ground. JonOne represents the spirit of openness of our event. It is a generous personality, of a curious nature, a contemporary artist who crosses borders, whose works are visible and accessible to everyone, from Harlem to Paris. "JonOne lent himself to the game by imagining an original poster painted on canvas.

John Andrew Perello told JonOne, an American artist of Dominican origin, began by tagging the walls and trains of his childhood neighborhood in Harlem in the 1980s.

From tunnels to the best pictures, from tag to oil painting, from New York to Paris, his paintings are now sold in the largest international cinemas and offer a Dionysian enjoyment of the lines, entangled in a labyrinth of explosions Visual and tactile. If he does not consider himself a committed artist, JonOne concedes that his work has been nourished by the social events opposing his adolescence such as the Black Panthers or May 68 in France. He paints standing, sitting, bending and putting his whole body at the service of his art, showing the movement proper to his works as to his life.
