Beyond the Streets

A-ONE

Activism

The paintings of A-ONE (Anthony Clark) reflect his African American and Rastafarian roots, from imagery to titles. Said to have started painting in the streets of New York at the age of 6, A-ONE was part of the Fashion MODA gallery show in 1982, while in 1984 he was the youngest artist to participate in the Venice Biennale. He collaborated with Jenny Holzer on her Survival, 1983-1985 series, his images integrated into her Truisms. A-ONE died in France in 2001 at the age of 37.
