The Delusional Art Competition is an international juried competition giving artists access to career-changing exposure on a global scale.  The competition not only includes exhibition opportunities and cash prizes, but it also offers access to some of the art world’s most-esteemed professionals.  In addition to gallerist Jonathan LeVine, Evan Pricco, Editor of Juxtapoz, Yasha Young, Director of Urban Nation Museum, Steven P. Harrington & Jaime Rojo, Brooklyn Street Art blog founders, and artists Jeff Soto and Tara McPherson comprise this year’s jurors.

The top 40 finalists will be included in a group exhibition at Jonathan LeVine Projects, be featured on the Delusional Art Competition website and be promoted on the gallery’s extensive social media networks.  Finalists will also be listed on the gallery’s highly trafficked Artsy page and receive extensive worldwide promotion in the form of email marketing, press release announcements, and widespread social media marketing.   

Our call for submissions is now open.  Winning images will be showcased on the Delusional website and promotional platforms, offering finalists and winners international exposure among art collectors, curators, and other galleries.  

Jonathan LeVine Projects is committed to new and cutting-edge art, exploring the terrain of the high/low and everything in between. As a youth growing up in Trenton, New Jersey during the 1980s, Jonathan LeVine recognized the appeal of countercultural aesthetics including punk flyers, comics, graffiti and tattoos.  In 2001, after years of independently curating at alternative venues, he decided to open a gallery specializing in this nascent art movement. Many people called him and this risky endeavor “delusional”, however, seventeen years later, he’s now the owner of one of the most well-known gallery’s in the world and has cultivated the careers of many renowned artists.  Today, Jonathan LeVine Projects creates engaging programs and interesting partnerships that go beyond his gallery space and focus on community and collaboration. The Delusional Art Competition is an extension of this mission and reinforces LeVine’s revolutionary presence in the global art market.
