Jone Hopper - Ghetto blaster

Description
Jone Hopper - Ghetto blaster
Mixed media - Hand signed

Born in 1977, Jone Hopper, is a French street artist.
Late 1980s, he learned the ropes in the streets through graffiti art, which was still an emerging movement at the time. He used to tag his name in the street, on walls and on trains. Renown for his spray paint characters and his signatures, he created the TBS (The Brutal Style) collective with Skepa and other committed graffiti artists. Very little is known about this artist since he remains faithful to the graffiti spirit and wishes to remain anonymous, believing that it is the work that should be promoted, not the person. Absent from social media, never present at exhibition openings, he is an artist without a face, remaining a true enigma, except to a few gallery owners in the loop. He compares his painting to a Hip Hop tune, he acts like a sampler... sampling, cutting, assembling and thus creating new images.
