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 style of urban art and the abstract of the contemporary. 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.

Considered one of the most important art galleries of recent times, this 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.
