RONE was born (1980) and raised in Geelong, Australia. He starts his career as artist by painting skate parks in Melbourne. In 2003 he faced legal obstacles due his the illegal graffiti exhibition ‘Empty show’ and the police caught and kept him for a while in the jail.On his passion for graffiti, he says:
“I always had a respect for graffiti. There was something about it that appealed to me, I think it was the risk of putting something up that will be judged by so many, the risk that someone will hate it and paint over it, or it will be praised by someone you’ll never meet.”
Nowadays RONE is famous for his amazing painting of charming and beautiful women. His masterpieces give a new life of some streets of Miami, New York, Melbourne and many other cities.Rone’s work attempts to locate the friction point between beauty and decay, the lavish and despoiled, creating an iconic form of urban art with a strongly emotional bent.
