The King of Counterculture by Paul Laster
Celebrating its fifth anniversary, Jonathan LeVine Gallery has made a counterculture name for itself by exhibiting and representing the best of street art and pop surrealism. Paying his dues as an independent curator who organized shows at alternative music venues, such as CBGB and Max Fish, LeVine opened his first gallery in Pennsylvania in 2001 and finally settled in New York’s Chelsea art district in 2005. Promoting a DIY aesthetic of international artists, influenced by illustration, comic-book art, and pop-culture imagery, LeVine provides a platform for a new generation of visual voices that believes there is another way — and through March 27, the evidence is on the gallery walls.
