Earlier this week, Jonathan Levine Gallery opened a unique group exhibition entitled Détournement: Signs of the Times. Curated by esteemed pop culture critic and senior editor of Paper magazine, Carlo McCormick, this collection of signed works represents “detournement” and the redirection brought upon intentionally by artists and their artwork in order to go against conventional flow. Included were a diverse list of artists from different genres and age groups like AIKO, Dan Witz, David Wojnarowicz (estate), Dylan Egon, EINE, Ilona Granet, Jack Pierson, John Law (Jack Napier), […]

Sculptor and photographer Jason deCaires Taylor recently made his premiere at Jonathan Levine Gallery with a solo exhibition entitled Human Nature. The British born artist who grew up with the coral reefs of Malaysia is known for taking his talents of altering environments to the ocean. Utilizing specialized PH neutral materials, Jason creates cement based sculptures and lays them in nature’s aquatic settings to create artificial reefs. Marine life grow and thrive around the artist’s “eco-sculptures,” kinda like underwater organic terracotta sculptures. Mr. Taylor then takes photographs of […]
Last weekend, the Jonathan LeVine Gallery kicked off the new year with two fresh shows. First was an exhibition curated by one of our favorite street art blogs – the Wooster Collective. Entitled Hybrid Thinking, the group show featured great works from DAL, Herakut, HYURO, ROA, SIT and VINZ. The other room showcased paintings from LA-based artist Natalia Fabia (interviewed) with a solo entitled Punk Rock Rainbow Sparkle. For this new body of work, Natalia focused her considerable talents on the subjects of raw punk […]
Taking a closer look at this year’s Scope art fair, we zoom in on New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery. They brought some old and some new to show Miami where they’ve come from and some of the new talent that’s coming down the pipeline. We caught WK Interact and Olek presenting fresh works alongside newcomers to the gallery such as Jason DeCaires Taylor and Aakash Nihalani with their thought provoking installations/photography. Check it out after the jump.
Tonight, Josh Keyes (interviewed) unveiled his latest body of work at New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery. As mentioned in our preview, this exhibition entitled Migration, explores the what if scenario of where ecological zones are crunched due to extreme changes in our climates. What type of odd behavior and patterns will emerge in the animal kingdom when food chain and bio-habitats reconfigure? Would pandas and bull sharks coexist peacefully? What about Grizzlies and Dingos? We were also delighted to see many awe inspiring JK favorites make a […]
Coca-Cola, Marlboro, Rolex, Adidas, Fender and Leica – what do those brands have in common? The answer is artist Dylan Egon. His experience as a tabletop design consultant & product stylist combined with a deep knowledge in the history of design & retail products allows him to create the profound and interesting art installations that we saw at this exhibition. These nostalgic assemblages were created by Egon for Home of the Brave at Jonathan Levine Gallery which focuses on his love of Americana. Check out […]
It’s been a while since we’ve caught up with artist Agata Oleksiak aka Olek. Last time, she took on Wall Street and its famous charging bull and this time, she’s exhibiting her works in a solo at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. The show title The Bad Artist Imitate, The Great Artists Steal may sound familiar because you probably saw it mentioned most recently from Banksy at his Bristol Museum show and previously from master Pablo Picasso. Being a performance artist, she got a few helpers to become […]
Opening alongside Brett Amory’s solo at Jonathan LeVine Gallery was also Dan Witz’s Mosh Pits, Human and Otherwise. This show featured the Brooklyn-based artist and his hyper-realistic painting style where he applies old master techniques to create incredibly vibrant and detailed works. We saw his signature large-scale oil paintings which feature Witz’s crazy and energy packed mosh pits as well as some works from his illuminated series. Check out this great body of work after the jump.
AM recently attended the opening of Brett Amory’s (interviewed) latest NY solo Dark Light (previewed) at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. This new series of paintings is a departure from Brett’s daytime series as the subjects are based in the still of night. However, Brett transitions his subjects and urban environments effortlessly into the emptiness of nocturnal darkness. We felt the lost and lonely feelings which we usually experienced in Brett’s works, but with the sun taken away, it felt even a little eerie as desolation wrapped around his signature […]
Exhibiting alongside Mars-1 (covered) and Miss Van (covered), Gaia took full advantage of the opportunity to show on his largest stage to date by transforming the Project Room at Jonathan Levine Gallery into dynamic visual feast. Much like his solo exhibition in Chicago in March, Resplendent Semblance (covered), the Baltimore-based street artist presented a selection of of his signature mixed media linocut decolloage works, along with a piece that incorporated oil paints into the equation as he illustrated his ability with more traditional techniques. As […]
