A pioneer in highlighting the first generation of New York graffiti artists, the Speerstra Gallery has played a decisive role in the evolution of the urban artistic movement. Since 1991, it has been a privileged partner of JonOne, collaborating closely with the artist to present his work and explore new territories of expression.

“Beats and Rhymes” plunges us into the heart of JonOne's raw power and creative dynamism. We go back to his sources of inspiration, to the days when the New York subway was the canvas for his creations. As if sections of a railcar had been extracted, the presented works are made on aluminum, finished with a car body varnish, and unfold like captivating fragments, immortalizing a pivotal moment in his work. The abundance of energy, the kaleidoscope of colors and the challenge to established norms reflect the boldness and insubordination inherent in the graffiti movement of the 80s.
