Biography / Jonathan LeVine

Originally from Trenton, New Jersey, Jonathan LeVine is an art dealer and curator focusing on lowbrow and street art. LeVine runs the Tin Man Alley gallery in Jersey City as well as the Delusional Art Competition that gives artists from around the world a chance to gain maximum exposure and recognition. Jonathan LeVine collaborated with URBAN NATION as a curator on Project M/6 in 2014.

Growing up in the 1980’s in Trenton New Jersey, LeVine lost himself in countercultural aesthetics including punk flyers, comics, graffiti and tattoos. As of 1994, he reinvented himself as a curator, organizing exhibitions at venues like the CBGBs, Webster Hall or Maxwell’s. His concept helped several underground art forms, like lowbrow art, to step out of obscurity. In February of 2001, Jonathan opened his gallery, the Tin Man Alley Gallery, which has found its momentary home in Jersey City. Four years later he went on to open the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in the Chelsea neighbourhood of New York. To this day, LeVine remains committed to leftfield art forms like street art or lowbrow.
