Hailing from Orlando, Jay "Jbon" Bonadio Jr. is not just an artist; he's a force that has redefined the art landscape over the past two decades. From humble beginnings in his college dorm room, where he dabbled in screen printing, Jbon's artistic journey took a turn when he launched a men's clothing line that quickly gained global recognition. But for Jbon, t-shirts were just the beginning.
Realizing that his canvas was boundless and his purpose as a creator ran deep, Jbon transitioned from fashion to art, screen printing large-scale pop culture designs onto canvas. This shift marked the birth of his signature “Neo-Mosaic” style, a mesmerizing blend of shattered glass concepts that he passionately crafts to this day.
Jbon's innovative use of shattered glass doesn't just add depth to his pieces; it has propelled him into the realms of large structural installations, bespoke interiors, and the intricate world of sculpture. His hand-sculpted mixed media installations and solid bronze sculptures are testaments to his evolving artistry.
As a celebrated Hard Rock International Artist, Jbon's Neo-Mosaic masterpieces grace the walls of HardRock establishments worldwide. One of his crowning achievements is a breathtaking 40-foot mural that dominates the lobby of the Hard Rock Baku in Azerbaijan.
Today, as a dedicated Neo-Mosaic and Sculpture artist, Jbon's work captivates both celebrities and corporate giants. Yet, he remains grounded, cherishing his loyal base of high-end art collectors. Whether showcased in private galleries, art auctions, or enhancing the ambiance of global businesses and luxury establishments, Jbon's artistry is a testament to passion, evolution, and boundless creativity.
