Experience JonOne "Colors of the Uprising" at Fabien Castanier Gallery


Colors of the Uprising

JonOne solo exhibition
November 26, 2019 - February 1, 2020

NOW ON VIEW THROUGH SATURDAY FEBRUARY 1
Fabien Castanier Gallery is excited to present a solo exhibition for urban contemporary artist JonOne, Colors of the Uprising. This is the fifth solo exhibition for JonOne at the gallery, featuring new paintings on canvas.

JonOne brings to Miami his latest body of work, a revelatory examination of moments grand and intimate through the masterful use of movement and color. As the quintessential graffiti-turned-gallery artist, JonOne continues to present impactful compositions that demonstrate an innate understanding of dynamic form through the harnessing of his own vibrant energy. Delving into his past and conjuring the abstract expressionism of his roots, these new paintings lend a glimpse into a chaotic yet balanced vision. His pieces are encounters – the story of conflicts, strife, and ultimate triumph both within ourselves and in our ever-changing modern world.

Presently, JonOne (b. 1963, New York) stands at the forefront of the urban contemporary art movement. His work has influenced a generation of both graffiti and contemporary artists, having built an impressive oeuvre in the past 30 years. His story begins in Harlem, New York in the 1980s, where as a youth he faced the struggles of finding an outlet for his artistic drive. Seeking freedom and self-expression, he began painting on the streets and on train cars. His current aesthetic can be traced back to this visual foundation of his childhood – the blurred images and colors from graffiti flashing before his eyes as the trains moved past. He was always different, bringing paint brushes instead of spray cans to tag the streets. When he was only 20 years old, he moved to Paris, a place that accepted him artistically and allowed him to develop his graffiti roots in a community that welcomed the proverbial outsider. Establishing his life in France, he has since evolved his career and reputation for the past three decades with a unique style, unparalleled in his genre.

JonOne has worked on a number of collaborations and projects in recent years, lending original designs of his style to notable companies, such as Perrier, Air France, Lacoste, Guerlain, Hennessy, and LG. He has also exhibited at several important galleries and institutions, including the Fondation Cartier for Contemporary Art and the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2015, he was given the Legion of Honor from France, celebrating the achievement with a painting "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" which was unveiled at the Palais Bourbon, the seat of the French National Assembly.

The Beloved Dog-Themed Art of South Florida Artist Skip Hartzell

Port Saint Lucie-based artist Skip Hartzell creates unique art inspired by man’s best friend. His inspiration comes in the form of a morning walk, accompanied by a furry friend. The canine-inspired artworks that he creates are figments of his artistic imagination and creative vision. Hartzell creates directly from his emotions and instincts, his work is inspired by dogs of all shapes, sizes and varieties.

Hartzell creates large paintings and works on paper that capture the essence of “dog”. He is best known for his unique sculptures recognized immediately by their distinct form and style that only Hartzell can produce.

‘Violet Dog’, Papercrete and Resin, 28 x 14 x 8 Inches

“Dogs are always in the moment. Although nothing in life has held my attention longer or has been more fascinating to me than dogs, my work is about much more than that. It is about form, movement, color and texture. The dogs are a recognizable common denominator that allows me to communicate my joy of living, passions and sentiments,” explained Skip Hartzell.

‘Litter’, Flashe & Graphite on Paper, 42 x 60 Inches

Whether he’s painting or sculpting, Hartzell’s dogs have a wonderful quality of friendliness about them, and it’s hard to keep yourself from reaching out to touch. And that’s perfectly okay with Hartzell. He’s never been one to place a rope around his artwork.

‘Dog Collar #2’, Resin and Steel, 36 x 12 Inches

“The texture is so important because the tactile experience of sculpture is so primal for me,” he says. “You grab with your hands and just start to mush things together and get your fingers on the materials, and there is just such a richness to the feel.” He says whenever he’s doing a show, he is quick to hand his sculptures to the patrons so they can enjoy the feeling, too. And whether it’s paint on canvas or sculpture, the texture is one of the most captivating and inviting parts of experiencing his artwork. Hartzell may not set out to mimic the look of someone’s beloved pet, but he says his sculptures and paintings often evoke a fond memory of a furry family member.

Happy Skip Hartzell Collectors at Art Palm Beach 2019

The artist has held numerous solo exhibitions at notable art galleries and prestigious art fairs such as Art Palm Beach, A.E. Backus Museum, ArtHouse 429, Paul Fisher Gallery, Aqua Art Fair during Art Basel Miami Beach and many more.

‘Swimmer #2’, Flashe on Canvas, 72 x 72 Inches

“If you love dogs, you are going to love Skip Hartzell’s soulful pieces. His work is representative of caricature features of dogs,” said J. Marshall Adams, the executive director of the A.E. Backus Museum and Gallery in Historic Downtown Fort Pierce where Hartzell has held exhibitions.
