John Andrew Perello known by the artistic name JonOne is a New York-born painter and graffiti artist of Dominican origin who was given an incredible opportunity to paint the newest Boeing 777 recently unveiled by the Air France to mark the company’s 80th anniversary. This is not the first collaboration between the artist and Air France and his fusion of original street art and painting is well known in France. At the beggining of 2015, after multiple international exhibitions, JonOne’s painting “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité” was inaugurated at the National Assembly, in the Salon des Mariannes and this painting even became the French stamp. For the past 80 years, Air France has had a special relationship with the contemporary art world collaborating with many contemporary artists; Zao Wou-Ki, Jeff Koons, JonOne and others. JonOne’s exceptional work of art represents the French flag and symbolizes freedom while speaking the company’s slogan: Air France, France is in the Air. For one year, JonOne’s design will mark Boeing 777 traveling on a legendary route from Paris to New York.
