JonOne. a painter and graffiti artist,  is the guest of honor at the Gallery 32 Tel- Aviv, where a magnificent exhibition of his works is being presented.

I  am very happy to have guided him, his family and friends for a few days.

Andrew John Perello, was born in 1963 in the Harlem neighborhood of New York to parents from the Dominican Republic. As a Harlem street child his introduction to street art began at an early age. He became acquainted with tags and graffiti drawn on subway cars and on the walls of the city, ” The subway is a museum that runs through the town ” he said. At 17, he entered the world of graffiti with his childhood friend “White Man,” he is marking his name Jon with the number 156 on walls and trains in his neighborhood. He moved to Paris in 1987, this city  was a revelation to him, he said Paris was the nucleus of street art, he is still today inspired and fascinated by this beautiful city.

Renowned painter, he has recently executed for the ”Palais Bourbon” a painting of the famous  ‘Marianne’ in his own style. This painting will soon be printed on French Republic postage stamps.

The old Train station from the Ottoman                         Period was lately renovated and became one of the         attraction of the Capital City of the Negev

          BEER SHEVA

 

 

 

 

The dream of the Mayor of Be’er Sheva, Rubik Danilovich, was to find out where that old 70414 train had gone and bring it back to his city. Despite numerous challenges and with the help of Britain he was finally able to repatriate a copy of the legendary train to the delight of the oldtimers who remember with nostalgia the sound of the train and its whistle. It was called PR, “Palestine Railways.”

A well known song relates the story of this legendary Train.
