Puerto Rican John Andrew Perello, better known by his alias JonOne, is one of today's major figures in the street art movement. His creations are inspired by hip-hop culture, break-dancing and simultaneously artists Kandinsky, Pollock and Schnabel.

JonOne's works are rich with colors and abstract improvisations. In 2013, after more than thirty years of creating street art, JonOne turned to a whole new medium - carpets. Along with Didier Marien of Boccara Gallery, JonOne has created five stunning limited edition street art carpets in wool and silk.

Respecting the traditions of carpets weaving, JonOne has breathed a new life into this archaic art form. Natural silk, unlike synthetic bristles, better reflects light and colors, making silk rugs so beautiful and sought after. Today, antique silk carpets blend perfectly with modern interiors.

In addition to these creations, the Boccara Gallery are also offering one of the finest collections of French carpets and ancient tapestries, on display in their New York, Moscow, London and Paris locations.
