If there is one word that defines Jonathan LeVine Gallery is “multidisciplinarity”, the art space that was founded by the owner, Jonathan LeVine, is one of the places that perfectly combine the characteristic style of urban art and the abstract of the contemporary world. This gallery opened its doors for the first time in its new location, New Jersey, with the exhibition: Welcome to New Jersey.

After 11 years of living in New York, Jonathan LeVine decided to transfer the gallery’s address to New Jersey, where he grew up and cemented his passion for art through punk. The purpose of this exhibition, integrated by international artists, is to continue with his goal proposed since his stay in New York: presenting a work diversity and the promotion of art that combines the practice of urban style.

Street art, pop surrealism and hyperrealism are the lines that follow most of these works, which are very different from each other.

Among the artists participating in Welcome to New Jersey (open until March 18th) are:

TaraMcPherson, whose work is focused on the representation of innocence through the intersection of myth, legend and astronomy; the famous urban artist Shepard Fairey; Erik Jones, artist who tackles themes about geometric realism; Diego Gravinese, with his hyperrealistic style; Alessandro Gallo, to whom he is recognized by his work that represents actions and habits in animals, which he places in each of his works with surrealistic dyes; among others.

Considered one of the most important art galleries of recent times, Jonathan LeVine Gallery is a space dedicated to promote artists and projects that challenge practice itself and contemporary art. The exhibition is a joint work with Mana Contemporary, the organization dedicated to the promotion of artistic projects.

Si hay una palabra que define a Jonathan LeVine Gallery es “multidisciplinariedad”, el espacio de arte que fue fundado por el propietario del mismo nombre, es uno de los lugares que conjunta de manera perfecta el estilo característico del arte urbano y lo abstracto del mundo contemporáneo. Esta galería abrió su primera muestra tras la apertura de su sede en Nueva Jersey: Welcome to New Jersey.

Tras 11 años hospedados en la ciudad de Nueva York, Jonathan LeVine decidió transferir el domicilio de la galería a Nueva Jersey, la urbe donde creció y cimentó su pasión por el arte a través del punk. El propósito de esta muestra integrada por artistas internacionales es continuar con la meta propuesta desde su estancia en Nueva York: presentar una diversidad de trabajos y la promoción del arte que amalgama la práctica propia del estilo urbano.

Street art, surrealismo pop e hiper realismo son las líneas que siguen la mayoría de estos trabajos, que sin embargo, resultan muy distintos entre sí.

IKON: Nychos solo exhibition debut

This Saturday June 26, we attended to the solo exhibition of Nychos IKON at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City. The illustrator and street artist presented a series of artworks inspired on the 1980s icons and fictional characters some of us we grew up with.

The Austrian artist uses colorful cartoon-like characters that explore their skeletal structure, making the audience see more through the core elements of the artworks, which are the flesh and bones. With the evolution of pop culture and the development of society, Nychos seeks to create awareness of the social-ecological crises by confronting the people to explore his pieces, as is the case in the exhibition with a Barbie doll whose face is melting into a cancerous drip. If you’re around Chelsea, we recommend you take a look at his solo show which will be open until July 23, 2016.
