JonOne – Niente può fermarmi (Nothing can stop me) is the catalog of the street art exhibition by the same name that opened March 17th, 2018 at Palazzo Velli, Rome. Curated by the Wunderkammern Gallery, the exhibition brings together 25 major unpublished works by the New Yorker artist and two critical texts which introduce the readers in the universe of one of the most famous Street artist of the moment. JonOne, who moved from New York to Paris several years ago, has already collaborated with varoius brands such as Lacoste, Guerlain, Air France and Perrier. His passage from the street to the gallery was natural, just as his vehicles passed from spray to brushes. Obsessed with his tag, and master in this, JonOne’s lettering blends with abstraction to give life to a work of fine art with a decided Urban taste. The catalog also includes works from Predictably Irrational, the JonOne exhibition at the Wunderkammern Gallery in Milan in 2016.

Night, a place inhabited by an unknown wildlife. A mixture that is not found anywhere else. Often hidden underground, emerging rarely during the day, people are living against time and against a system, for a lifetime or for some hours. A world inside another world. Some come to work, others for fun, the night is fast, while few change overnight, people leave, come back, hide, change their appearance.

Motherland addresses the relationship between photography and territory in its deepest understanding, among authors and belonging to a place. The images that arise are born out of a growing need to look for their homeland: each responds in its own way, investigates its old or new lands, large or small, real or virtual, with personal visions, the result of the need to return or to get away. Motherland is an issue investigated and widespread in photography and the festival of Rome, from which the volume is born, researching today around the creation of ever new identities in a discovery and technology of the world, where, however, the strong need to investigate new territories; look for your own.
