Commissioned by the City of Lille, JonOne presents the city’s inhabitants with a new artwork at Gare de Flandres. With this piece, the artist hopes to offer travelers and locals a breath of fresh air, a message of happiness and hope.
This abstract work uses the medium of Portuguese azulejos, and the material comes alive under the stroke of his brush. For this permanent public installation, JonOne uses a unique painting and pigmentation technique on the ceramic tiles to achieve as vibrant an effect as possible. Street art is brought back to its rightful home in a form that combines both painting and traditional craftsmanship, creating a unique dialogue between contemporary art and the heritage of tomorrow.
Inauguration: 06 Sept. 2023
