“Jon and I share a love for street culture where creativity, life, pride, chaos are banded together. This book is a tribute to hip-hop, to street culture, art, soul and to the precious moments of life that we share.” –Maï Lucas
The pulsating monochrome of Drago’s 36 chambers series is met by the iconic graffiti and photography that defines Maï, Jonone and streets of New York. Their eclectic tour of the streets takes the reader through some of New York’s most distinctive neighbourhoods as seen as seen through the lens of celebrated photographer, Maï Lucas. Meanwhile, JonOne’s unique graffiti writing permeates the pages with vibrant red accents.
JonOne’s paintings defy the “rules” of graffiti. With a tremendous sense of movement and color, his compositions combine freestyle, hand-painted aesthetics with a sense of repetition akin to textile patterns. His work has often been compared to that of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock and French artist Jean Dubuffet. By layering precise strokes and vibrant color, he creates a uniquely balanced yet dynamic visual experience.

Maï Lucas grew up in Paris in the 1980s. When she was still very young she was lucky enough to meet figures like photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino, designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Serge Kruger, DJ at the Bains Douches nightclub. At the age of eighteen she was assistant to Stéphane Sednaoui and Nick Knight, before becoming a fashion photographer in her own right. Fascinated by street culture, she travelled back and forth between New York and Paris, finally settling in New York where for over twenty years now she has documented the streets. Through her street portraits of Afro-American or Latino youngsters who invent their own clothing codes, what she does above all is decode their signals of self-assertion, the emblem of a community that protests its difference, or even the mark of cultural cross-breeding. This focus has taking her between the two cities New York and Paris during the last ten years together with her husband, graffiti artist John Perrello.
