His drawings are made in pencil on paper or on special tablets. Each work is aimed at encouraging the viewer to think. The artist shows both the fragility and the invincibility of the reality surrounding us, and in this ambivalence there is a special attraction of his work.

The master pays special attention to drawing the smallest details, so he spends from a few days to a couple of months to create each of his paintings. The reward for painstaking work is the most traced image, literally reviving in front of his eyes.

One of the iconic works of Jono Draya is a picture of hands depicting each other.The idea is not new, in fact, the African rethought the famous optical illusion "Drawing hands", created by the master Escher back in 1948. However, John Drey slightly modified the concept of the image: in his interpretation, one of the hands belongs to himself, and the second to his mother. A talented artist managed to turn a popular illustration into a deeply personal history of relationships between a middle-aged mother and her adult son.
