Jone Hopper - Black man

Description
Jone Hopper - Black man
Mixed media - Hand signed

Jone Hopper is a French street artist born in 1977.
Late 1980s, he learned the ropes in the streets through the emerging movement at that time: graffiti. He tagged his name in the street, on walls and on trains. Known for his spray-painted characters and tags, he created the TBS collective (The Brutal Style) with Skepa and other committed graffiti artists. We do not know a lot about this artist since he is 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 attending exhibition openings, he is an artist without a face, remaining a true enigma, except for a few gallery owners in the know. He compares his painting to a Hip Hop tune, he acts like a sampler... sampling, cutting, assembling and thus creating new images.
