JONJON GREEN by Youta Matsuoka

JONJON GREEN graduated from Tama Art University in Tokyo. Soon after graduation he did what many great artists do, he went on a solo backpacking trip throughout Asia and Europe, returning to Japan in 2004.

A rebellious and curious spirit, JONJONs work is heavily influenced by street and graffiti culture with special nods to counterculture movements like the Beat movement in the 50's and the Punk movement in the 70's. With continual experimentation of materials and patterns the usual "happy mistake" that is the outcome of these explorations is often used to build new works.

Not seeing himself as a street artist, JONJON better connects to the idea of being a contemporary artist, who through mixed media and cultural influences, creates works that convey strong concepts and feelings.

Upon his return in 2004 to about 2010, JONJON focused most of his creative energy into live painting and murals. Since then he has shifted some of his focus to creating art works for exhibitions and commercial work for companies like Facebook(JP), Instagram(JP), Cocacola(JP), Heineken and Uniqlo to name a few.

JONJONs recent work is an evolution of his 2012 series titled “SCENES”. The work now takes on a more restrained and purposeful, yet abstract form, while continuing his signature use of mixed materials and electric color schemes.

JONJON GREEN has exhibited in Japan, USA, Singapore, Canada and Sydney.
